6/10 Good

The hotel isn't bad, they had recently aquired the building and you can tell. They did replace old carpet with vinyl flooring but they left the old furniture. The orange couch and light brown chair were visibly blackened with dirt, the bed seemed to have a newer mattress. The dressers and other furniture were from the 70's and not well kept. Parking was fine, the room was large and quiet which is onenof the most important things.

4/10 Fair

the room was ok. it would have been better if there was a small refrigerator and a microwave. the room needed an extra lighting especially by where you hang up your clothes. the bath tub doesn’t drain well when you are showering. the water was almost to your ankles. getting breakfast, they didn’t have enough for everyone. we wanted more yogurt but only had three and there’s 4 of us. even after we took the 3 yogurts people after us didn’t have anymore. if you want more juices and yogurt, they charges you. when i asked 2 cups for coffee the guy from the concierge seemed bothered. the room needs more tables too or extra chair.

Limited Airport Shuttle Times
Beware! Shuttle runs in morning and afternoon (after 5pm). So if you have a midday flight like me, it's not useful. I didn't see this info on the site and would have liked to know the full info so I could make an informed decision. Thankfully the bus to the airport ($2.25 exact cash or Clipper card) runs every half hour from about 2 blocks away. Convenient location. Great customer service and check in experience. Comfy beds and good for a quick stay.

Organized location but biggest complaint relates to what I saw as free airport shuttle which has very limited hours and resulted in extra cost and travel stress which defeated the purpose of our choosing this location. Otherwise, the room was adequate for the price except the free breakfast is a banana and processed snacks in a bag. Another disappointment.
