Exceptional 10.0
Our stay was very enjoyable! House keeping very accommodating and friendly. They searched for my granddaughters bathing suit when it became lost in the linen taken to the laundry and found it almost immediately. Room was very clean and comfortable.

Very Good 8.0
Pillows not great, breakfast could use a better variety of choices, otherwise good!

Poor 2.0
Would NOT stay here again
I would not recommend this place. The floors were sticky and there was mold in the shower it made for a very uncomfortable stay due to the lack of cleanliness. We had a balcony with railing that was loose. Our view from the balcony was towards the street where there were some very questionable people loitering. The area where the hotel is located is not that good, so I even felt uncomfortable about leaving my car in their parking lot.

Poor 2.0
Never stay here
There was no shower curtain in the bathroom. The paint was peeling off the walls. The sliding glass door had no lock. We went down to breakfast three times. There was nothing to eat, the coffee was cold. No place to park on the property. There was only one person at the front desk, always a line, and the phone constantly ringing. She was so busy she couldn't answer it.

Fair 4.0
Very disappointed with our stay. Have stayed at Hotel Solaris for three consecutive years. The condition of the room and hotel has deteriorated. Paint in the bathroom was peeling off the ceiling. The bathroom walls and doors needed to be cleaned. The air conditioner was not working. Bed was uncomfortable. Our room was not serviced our first day. There was more homelessness around the hotel. Unless it’s another last minute trip and options are few, will not stay again.
