We love to stay here because of the convenient location to the convention center. located close to all kinds of asian restaurants. Room rates went up significantly since they remodeled. A bit too pricey but at least safe and clean.

Nice secure and clean hotel

Pros: Cleanliness and updated.
Cons: They can use fabric softener on the towels.
Location: Near highway, easy off and on.
Easy on and off the highway. Very clean and updated rooms. Comfortable bed. My only complaint is the scratchy towels. Overall a good place to stay.

Clan, but noisy.

The room was nice enough, clean, well kept. But the alluding glad door to three balcony was so thin,that it sounded like it was open all night. A dump truck came to empty the dumpster, woke everyone in our room, then none of us could fall asleep again because of the sounds of the seagulls. The staff was friendly enough, we just didn't sleep well. This is really the only reason that I would not recommend this hotel, or ever stay there again.

it should cost $50 a room

Hair on the tray, freezing room due to a crack on the sliding door and very very old smelly and very loud heater. Thank god there was another bed took all the bedding of that second bed to sleep. Shower was GREAT hot water came out instantly, best feature. Last morning I was awaken by the gardeners at 8:30 cutting grass with ear protectors, irony! Breakfast horrible did not eat any day, but did see the staff cleaning the tables with soap and water AND THEN putting the chairs ON the tables, irony? Staff has an interesting idea of what clean and comfortable is, the clerk's answer to my question of why do they have the gardeners come so early was just as interesting as the idea of putting dirty chairs on clean tables. Overpriced for sure, this place has been around since 1960 and it is in the same condition.

Ok not great

This is an ok hotel. Room pretty clean but strange sweet smell. My guess is something to cover smoke at some point. Facility a bit run down. Breakfast adequate for continental style. Staff friendly enough. Price is good

The Worst!!!

Cons: Tare down start from scratch! This dump made my mom sick from the old cigarette smelling carpet! Fish smell from Marina Mkt w/window open! Total Dump!
Location: Marina Market that's all you could smell if you opened the window to Air the ashtray out rotten fish! So your stuck and the cigarette smell.
This Hotel should be for pets only! What a joke! Booked non smoking and the carpet smelled like an ashtray! Never again! Didn't stay the second night who would?
