Not like the pictures. Property is old however the inside was clean. It was quiet. Had trouble with the electronic key they had going on. Ok stay.

Exceptional 10,0
Great stay
Stay was great and comfortable. The staff as well here are very nice and make sure you are taken care of. The only negative I would say is paying $12 to park in their lot. I never had to pay a fee to park at the hotel so I wasn’t too fond of that feature.

Fair 4,0
Disappointed experience
The room I booked didn’t match the pictures. Everything looked old and there was mold in bathroom wall. I wouldn’t have booked that place if I knew would condition the room would be!

Gem among Business Giants by SFO!!
This was our first and best experience with a lower star rated property..while on honeymoon, your credit cards can quickly run up! And without being able to GO somewhere far & beautiful we tooled around our coastline...This place was frugal but clean & sharp looking in the ads...and FULLY surpased all that upon arrival! BiG spacious rooms, pet friendly without a bunch of drama, phone app keyless room entry, quality linens, big TV's...only drawback? No onsite food, wait they had vending stuff! But seriously, the bathroom was tiny and cramped feeling compared to room. So what. Would DEFINITELY stay again!

Don’t stay here
I guess the “you get what you pay for” terminology was first said by a previous guest from this hotel. When I booked my stay I was told parking was included with the amount charged on my card. When I arrived they informed me that parking was extra $20! Washer and dryer were not working, Hot water wasn’t working in the shower and the heater was broken! I wouldn’t have cared much for the heater if I had visited in the summer time but it was 42 degrees and I had my two kids who really my main concern as I didn’t want them to be cold. Hotel did nothing accommodate us, I will definitely not be staying here again!

It did the job but there was a lot of homeless nearby and rif raf. I think they come into the hotel at night. Party in the hall, someone fighting with whomever they were there with. Made me uneasy. But I wasn’t at my room much.

Poor 2,0
Worst experience ever . Seriously . No fridge or microwave in the room . Kinda ugly looking . The front desk is slow . Waited over an hour for ice . U have to pay an extra $13 per night to park there . Breakfast isnt even breakfast . Thr front desk is rude . Called the room to tell us to "keep the noise level down" becuase my 2 year old wasnt feeling well .then having the audicty to tell us to "figure it out" . Shame on you . Will never again stay there
