The room smelled like cigarette smoke and there was no warm/hot water in the shower. Pretty dingy

Okay Stay
Perfect location. Walking distance to alot of stuff. Young lady at front desk was very nice to allow us to park the morning of our check in so we could do a tour. The room looked okay when we walked in but soon realized several issues. The floor was dirty. My feet were black after showering. The room base boards and corners looked like they have never been cleaned. Bathroom shower looked nice but grout was horrible. Bed was firm and pillows were good but the bed top sheet was stained and cigarette burn holes. Furniture looked very worn but all functional. We paid almost $200 for 2 nights... We left just before 7am but no one was at the office to turn in our key or get a receipt. I rang the bell 3-4 times. We spent 2 nights at a place by the airport at a rate of $20 less and a very clean place. Chances are we will opt to stay at the second place on our next visit. If clealiness is not a concern then This place is Perfect

A Surprising Gem!
We were very surprised at how great of a stay we had here! The rooms are updated and the shower is one of the nicest I've seen in a hotel. The floors and ceilings were really pretty too. Check in was quick and easy, on site parking was a huge plus as well. Will definitely be back again!

Ok stay
Room wasn’t as clean as we would have liked, floor needed to be cleaned. Overall it was an ok stay. House keeping needs to knock before entering a room.

Care more about your business
The condition of the room wasn’t good. Don’t know if they thought I was the one to give a sub par room to or not but here we are. The wooden blind had a towel in place of the wood. Easily a $20 fix with an effort. The bathroom had black mold. Not a little bit but enough for me to take a picture. The noise level at night was ok and the area is pretty safe. I just think caring about experience of the guest should come first so that means don’t give out sub par rooms because it’s an indication to how you take care of your establishment.

Care more about your hotel
For every hotel I stay in, I understand why people pay more for better accommodations. Hotels shouldn’t treat guests like a revolving door. Take some time to fix your place between customers. No two people are alike and standards are important to the majority. Also they advertise a bathtub but it’s only a shower.

Sleepless n San Francisco
They don't like regular people I'll say. They tried to deny my reservation. The desk clerk tried to lie about my reservation. And after he got busted he tried to make a joke and say well I'm gonna have to change that fast. As if he could fix it qwik enough to refuse me.
