The Horror of staying @ the Hotel San Carlos
Bed was Hard & Lumpy as were the pillows. No frig in any of the rooms so I had to leave my Insulin w/the Front Desk,,, Very inconvenient !! Had to park off-site & carry our luggage to the Hotel because they didn't even have a drive up for Registration so that we could have at least dropped off our luggage before Parking the car. I won't be staying here EVER again !!

Average
The hotel staff were great. The room was average. The internet was not good at all. The bathroom light switch was outside the bathroom. The bathroom was tight with the tiles carved around the fixtures.

Good $99 room for $440
Crusty old place in desperate need of renovation but good location. The room would have been fine for $99 but cost $440 per night. No room temp adjustment- both a/c and heat blasting constantly. Shower water temp fluctuates between scalding and cool on its own. Old fashioned room entry door with bents to the hall on top so everything said in the hall as well as the room across the hall can be heard, and vice versa. Coffee maker but only 1 (one) serving supplied. I could go on... Do yourself a favor and stay at the Hilton across the street

Great Hotel
Staff was very helpful. I booked this hotel 6 months in advance for the Elton John concert. We wanted to be able to walk to the concert at Chase stadium. It was a very close. We would diffidently stay here again! I didn't encounter any ghosts, sadly.

Worst experience ever! Don't book!
The 4th floor room was very hot because there wasn't an individual room air conditioner! Not stated on the site when we booked and if it was we wouldn't have booked it. This hotel is in Phoenix AZ one of the hottest places in USA! Warm air coming from the vent that was supposed to blow cold air from their one and only main unit. No room refridgerator. Burn holes in our sheets looked like cigarette burns. Curtains had raw edges with no hemming. The place was a hot mess! The site said restaurant on site. There was a restaurant room across from front desk but it had big gold gates at the entrance that where locked, so definitely no dinner or breakfast being served. Not as advertised! A big miss! Don't book! Definitely not what you'd expect for a $250 night! They wouldn't even valid our $16 parking ticket. Very disappointed
