“An average hotel. Better ones out there!!”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

The staff here are not very friendly and helpful. (some are more then others). Location is not the best a bit to far from the downtown/gaslamp area. Walkable but far and streets are pretty dark. Taxi rides can be expensive to and from. Rooms are very clean but very small. And weekends people from other rooms have party's and go out etc and it is very noisy had I to ring down stairs to ask them to tell others to be quite however they already knew this and neighbors were still very loud!! Breakfast was very ordinarily not much choice we didn't eat there once didn't look very clean. Overall I think there are better hotels closer to downtown/gaslamp area for around the same price and probably with better service!!

Stayed here over Veteran's Day weekend for a relaxing weekend with the hubby. The entire staff here was excellent, the place was spotless and everybody greeted you will a smile. The problem was the guests. Being that this building seems to have been a former apartment building the walls are thin. Had someone two doors down wake us up late in the night when he decided to be extremely loud. Thankfully there was a tough marine manning the desk and kept these folks in line but unfortunately, once you walk my husband up it is nearly impossible for him to go back to sleep and made for a cranky touring buddy. Our last night there we had a couple going into a full fledged argument that woke us up. Screams and insults were hurled, furniture was thrown, doors were slammed and of course I made a call to the front desk. Took about another 30 minutes for them to calm down. Husband and I could not go back to sleep. Give it another 30 minutes and the couple of course "made up" if you know what I mean. I did not get to sleep at all all three nights here.

They need to do a a better job of soundproofing the walls and also have better blinds to block out the sun. I have no other qualms than this.

I keep coming back to this place because they make me feel at home. Bobby, always treats me nice with a big smile and make sure that I am happy with the services and accomodations. Alex is another great person to meet. He makes you smile with his jokes. Great place!
