      You "Found" a great place to stay

      This is a good hotel for travelers on a budget (when the rates are on the lower side especially, as they seem to fluctuate). It's clean and comfortable, in a great location. It's not a typical hotel, they acknowledge they run it more like an Airbnb. The staff are very friendly and accommodating! One suggestion to the hotel, although cleanliness is very good, clean / mop the floors in the rooms. Thank you FOUND I really enjoyed my stay!

    • 4.0.Fair

      I paid extra for the jetted tub room and the jets didn’t work. I said something to the desk staff the day I checked in and was told it would work once I filled the tub up. It did not. I told the desk again the next and was told a maintenance person would look it that day. I never saw maintenance and the tub never worked

      No parking, AC broke, Blood stain on sheet

      First it took us 45mins of circling the hotel looking for parking, then we get into our room just to find out the AC is broke but they left us a fan in the room, so they knew it was broken. We had to sleep with the windows open right next to the freeway and it was beyond loud and hot. My family didn’t get sleep. When we woke up the next day I had notice that there was a blood stain on the corner of the sheet. Gross. If you have white sheet make sure they are clean and stain free. I’m requesting a refund for the horrible night we had.

      I would rather not again

      Staff were gossiping women, covid-19 was a excuse for everything even tho living quarters where on top of each other and none of the staff had mask.

      Found hotel nightmare on Grape Street;(

      Our room looked nothing like the online pictures. It was creepy and dirty, molding food in mini fridge, bathroom had strong urine smell, carpet was blue with a dirty brown layer on top, the room was stuffy like it had not had an open window in years!! The armor was broken, and the door had 3 huge scratches going across like Wolverine was there!! Great for a Halloween haunt, not for a business stay. Street parking had broken glass on the streets from break ins. Worst experience ever. We went up a few blocks to the Four Points Sheraton, expensive parking but much safer and definitely spotless clean and everything was in working order;)

      Nice little hotel. Clean and friendly staff. The only thing is we didn’t have air conditioner and it got really hot. Overall not bad for the price.

      The Actual Worst Ecer

      This is hands down the most deplorable, disgusting lodging option I’ve ever stepped foot in. There is no parking and the entire building is absolutely filthy and smells STRONGLY of urine. In the evenings there is zero assistance on site and no way to contact anyone. Places like this destroy vacations. The entire place needs condemned. I was told weeks ago I’d be refunded in full by the hotel but I have yet to see a dime and will be filing a dispute with my credit card company.
