    Old style but friendly

    Great location, however room quite small and no a/c or fridge. Friendly and nice staff and the most amazing bar/restaurant attached called Perry’s.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Very clean and helpful front desk. Reserved a viewed room but didn’t get a viewed room. I got upgraded to a KING size bed room and some champagne. Room was clean and bed was very comfy. Was disappointed we didn’t have a fridge or a microwave in the room. Also no on-site parking at all. So had to pay for parking for the weekend at a covered parking area 2 blocks away. Over all was a nice stay.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Horrible Hotel!

    Don’t ever stay here! I booked 3 nights for $420.86 to stay at this filthy hotel. I booked this place for the location near the bay and to be away from downtown. After the first night of bad sleep. I realized the thermostat did not have a proper climate control on it. The room was either blasting hot air or super cold air. There was no in between. I also found a bag with a white powdery substance in it. Looks like drugs on the floor next to the bed night stand. I mentioned the temperature issues to the front desk on the second day at the hotel. The hotel staff said we could upgrade the room for an additional $60 per night. This is outrageous! I called the manager and they will not offer me a refund because they said there is no record of me talking to anyone. These are bad business practices. I will never stay here again.

    Would not stay again.

    There were no refrigerators available for the room. The worst thing is the $200 deposit.

    Good Place

    The hotel was fine and the service great. We had incredibly noisy people nextdoor who didn't go to sleep, played music until 5 am and used the VERY LOUD ice machine (which was outside our door) seemingly every 30 minutes. Those gripes aren't the hotel's fault, it just put a damper on our stay.
