      Weaponised reservation

      During my checkin the manager was rude. He would not take the time to explain the checkin process. I had questions because I had rented three rooms. To gain control over our conversation, he threatened to refuse service. My reservation was prepaid. Canceling would have caused me to loose my lodging and money.

    • 2.0.Poor

      No, no, no

      This was the worst hotel that I’ve ever stayed in. Here is the list of things that needed repair or addressing within the first hour of our stay: Toilet bowl wouldn’t flush, Sink was leaking water, WiFi was down, Remote control wasn’t working, business center couldn’t print boarding passes. Lobby smelled like smoke. Rooms weren’t bayside view even though we had been assured of that earlier in the day. Instead had a view of rundown buildings across the street. Area was unsafe. Definitely would NOT recommend for families. Unfortunately cannot trust Hotels.com ratings after this experience.

      Last Minute Get Away

      Overall I had a great stay. Morning of checkout maid knocked on my door every hour from 8am until I checked out. I know things are just opening back up and the options are limited for breakfast. It will be nice when breakfast can be served again.

      Very prompt at replying

      Walked in the room smelled like cigarettes. Had to Lysol it down. The desk chair was extremely beaten down. The couch was extremely old. Otherwise, everything else as good! Hotel text and asks when you’ll be arriving and if I needed anything, I would text them and they’d respond within 10 minutes.

      Good breakfast next door at sister hotel lounge. Enjoyed waterside room. Sunsets too! Felt COVID ‘safe’ because of extra cleaning and disinfecting protocol. Could detail vacuum more. Have made several trips there. Am a local, Love it there! I find it quite peaceful. TV selection is good with Premiere channels. Soaker tub a must do.

      Being forced to pay $15a day for unsecured parking and there is on street is a joke. Room stunk, beds uncomfortable. Not worth $400 for two nights at all!!

      Spacious, mini kitchenette, living room/lounge area in room, balcony with patio furniture, bathroom with deep soak tub and glass enclosed shower, private separate toilet area. I will stay here again the next time I’m up in the Bay Area. This place is amazingly awesome.
