The room was very clean. The towels were small and very worn. The refrigerator was not working as well as the bathtub drain. They was no lighting on the patio. There was an extra resort fee charge of $29.00 that was not mentioned to me when I booked the room. Would not stay there again.

The best thing about this property is the location, being practically in Old Town. However, the condition of this property was awful. There were stains on the sheets and towels. The towels were rough, ripped and looked very old. Everything about this hotel was in “beat up” condition with chips in the sink and scuffs everywhere, even on the popcorn ceiling. And the mattresses were incredibly hard. Worst three nights of sleep in my life. I thought this would be a funky fun hotel. It needs a total makeover.

Kimberly, Thank you for taking the time to post your review, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our location. I will follow up with my staff regarding our towels and linen this should never be in the condition that you described. We will also check into the room and figure out if the mattress needs to be replaced, thank you for allowing us to look into these concerns for you we value your feedback.

The hotel is well situated to Old Town, the Civic Center and Contemporary Art Museum. It is within walking distance to these areas, shops and restaurants. It has a nice pool, fire pit, and restaurant on site.

Fun funky design, comfy room. Relatively quiet. Fast room service. Downside would be so many extra costs like $7 water bottles in the room, the resort fee. But overall fun to stay over in and perfect location to walk to Old Town, museum, and Civic Center.

Very good location otherwise just an average hotel. They will charge you a daily"Resort fee" which is extra and a dollar a day for some donations?

Miguel, Thank you for taking the time to post your review I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of our hotel. I hope you were able to take advantage of all that our hotel has to offer, as our resort fee covers free bikes to ride around town, also covers parking and upgraded Wifi, along with newspapers in the lobby this fee also allows us to keep our pool open year around with heaters in the Winter and Chillers in the summer. We hope you give us another try in the future.

Over all good, but cleanliness was an isdue. Dead insects were under the curtins and they were still there after two nights of my stay. The bath room was nit cleaned around the toilet and the waste basket. Stains on the black bathroom floor were so obvious.

Don't stay here!!!!

We checked in and booked another resort (Omni) the moment we got to the room. Such a gross hotel run by people who are.... nice, but all high school or college students. No manager on site all weekend. We expect a nice and somewhat luxury hotel when we travel, and if you do too, DO NOT book this hotel!!

Great comfortable, colorful hotel, really enjoyed the pool and atmosphere, staff was very helpful and friendly, a little pricey (not on some standards) on food and drinks but very unique and tasty.  It was a place I will tell friends about and would stay again.
