    Excellent staff, very helpful and polite

    Busy check-in however clerk was extremely friendly and efficient. Apologized for wait and cleaned up bottle I dropped on the floor as if it was no problem at all. Breakfast was well stocked and clean. Manager was approachable and always willing to help out. rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Only issue the entire stay was no towels at the pool. Great place for great price.

    Hotel Needs an Upgrade or Deep Cleaning

    Tried to check-in a bit early and front desk said to come back at 3 but guaranteed us a room with a king. Came back at three, waited nearly 30 minutes and heard the manager on the phone asking another employee if he was going to show up to work because there was a long line. Had to push to get the King. The room had significant, creepy human stains on furniture and carpets. Bathroom was really nice though.

    Meh

    The whole place reeks, the maids use vinegar to clean everything, and you can't open your windows. Huge sliding glass windows in the rooms but they are bolted closed because of "the fires". And if you want to extend your stay they charge you another 100$ before you even get your deposit back. I didn't understand that at all. I stayed in the same room and didn't check out but got charged $200 for extending my stay for 2 days.

  • 6.0.Good

    Nice hotel,bad neighborhood. There was always a security guard outside chasing people off the property who didn't belong there.and the police drove around the hotel when they were in the neighborhood. Very uncomfortable sitting outside to drink my morning coffee,because all the balconies are locked for safety,so you can't use them.

    This Hotel is one of a kind. It made us feel safe. The elevators, pool, and gym had hand sanitizers and clean towels all the time. It was super nice, because we made appointment to use pool and Gym, which made us feel safe. The breakfast was great too. The rooms are specious.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Noisy all night long

    The room has sliding glass doors out to a small balcony. The street traffic noise is very loud coming through those doors, and made sleeping very difficult. Not a comfortable stay.
