I'm to old for this old hotel
The hotel is old. Creepy old not cute old. Breakfast was a little dull so only had it once. Cereal, bread, muffins and apples. Bad coffee. Rooftop was lovely. Staff very nice and the place is clean. Bed small. Location can be good or bad depending on your perspective. Right on top of a nightclub with music and loud people until 3am. I had ear plugs and could still hear it. Not somewhere I would choose to say again.

Gas Lamp Plaza Suite Hotel
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was kept very clean and its location in the Gas Lamp Quarter meant that there were plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. The only slight negative was not with the hotel but the fact that on friday and Saturday nights there was some noise from the town

Exceptional 10.0
The service was absolutely excellent! The staff was super friendly and of service immediately. They upgraded our room to view the water, which was a pleasant surprise to say the least! We also loved the location because we were able to walk to all of the restaurants and bars or take a quick uber trip to Little Italy and the zoo. It was a perfect stay. We definitely will be returning to the Gaslamp Plaza Suites!

We loved the room. It had a microwave and a fridge. The only thing is that it didn't have a pool and you have to pay for parking when usually when you stay at a hotel parking is free.

Parking is horrible!! Hotel staff superb!
The hotel staff were amazing! Clean room and a great location to all the restaurants and bars downtown. Parking was absolutely horrible. You have to scan a qr code and prepay for however many days. Seemed simple. Parking garage is tiny so my truck barely fit around the tight corners to get in and out. Getting in the garage was easy on day 1. Getting out was easy on day 2, short drive to Coronado beach. Getting back into the garage on day 2 was a no go. My qr code that was supposed to allow me unlimited in and out access for 3 days was invalid midway through day 2. I pushed the help button, guy answered, asked me to confirm my name and phone number and opened the gate for me. Helped the current situation but didn't fix the problem. I had to check out early on day 3 to head up to LAX to pick up my wife. Had my 7 and 4 yr old boys ready to pick up mom. Had to walk the 2 blocks with all of our luggage and pulling a cooler. Get to the entrance, scan my code and again, I can't get in. Push help button, nobody answers. A man entering the garage in his car gets my attention and lets us run in ahead of him. We load the truck, drive down to the exit gate, push help button. The female that answered acted like she never heard of the term customer. She insisted that they don't offer any unlimited access plans. I said I have an email that says you do. I had to confirm all of my info including the long confirmation number. Because of her dispicable treatment, I will NEVER PARK THERE AGAIN!

Great service!
Wonderful service from the staff! First, they upgraded me to a suite. Then, they let me keep my room for a few hours past checkout until my flight. The staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome!

Poor 2.0
Terrible Experience & Unacceptable Treatment
I rarely leave bad reviews, as I know most are doing their best and can't please everyone. My experience here, however, was so terrible, I feel compelled to share. The staff, save one gentleman who worked the night shift, were rude to the point of being hostile. I understand everyone is on edge due to COVID, but this is no excuse for treating people with disdain. I will never go back and encourage people to find a room elsewhere.

No parking, water in the sink clogged up.
