Clean basic city hotel fine for a couple of nights stay, parking a bit pricey $27 per night but as in any city it is what you would expect, having said that there is free parking along the roads we parked in Manchester just around the corner with no problems, just do not park in front of a fire hydrant...

This was booked for me by a family member and I was very impressed. I was greet with open arms and the staff was outstanding. My morning started with the breakfast buffet and a very accommodating young man. The poolside restaurant was also very nice. I would especially like to thank Jose who made sure that my car and luggage... More

The Custom hotel is nothing if not unique. There are pros and cons... The hotel is situated along the public bus line so travel is cheap but the system of busses are difficult to navigate and the people on the bus are often sketchy. The customer service is Outstanding! The staff are all super friendly, courteous, and helpful. One desk... More

If you miss your college days, then stay here. The employees are very nice. The physical condition of the hotel is poor: indoor/outdoor carpeting, ugly paint, old bathrooms, bed is on the floor, furniture is worn out, lighting is silly/poor, etc.

I was a little disappointed when I stepped into hotel. It has a chic feel but the building is rather old. I used my groupon as it commented very good (5 stars) but I feel it as a mere 3 stars only. Especially when I went to the washroom, the cover of the tiles coming off and there is no... More

Has agood market and a couple of restaurants next door. Hotel staff not extremely friendly but correct BUT I logged into a free internet conection to check flight and then realised... More

We stayed at this hotel as a group of four in their largest suite -- two bedrooms, a living room, and an eating area. The hotel is pet friendly, which I loved. The suite was huge! It also had great views on the top floor. But it was has seen better days. While it had a modern feel -- it... More

The definition of boutique hotel includes "comfortable" and "no frills." This is a pretty good description of the Custom Hotel. Friendly staff, clean, free wi-fi and just plain simple. Stayed here with my wife and daughter and a bunch of family for a wedding. Reading some of the other reviews, there are small "off" things that you'll notice...like no desk... More

Look, I'm going to be straight up, Custom Hotel isn't for everyone. It's an old joint that has been renovated to about 75% completion and the finish is sometimes a bit average, but overall it's awesome. The hotel has charm to it, the staff are incredibly tolerant of shenanigans and It has a pool with a terraced bar and cabanas.... More

Dear Valued Guest, Yes, we have an amazing Pool Area with Cabanas, a Bar & great Restaurant called Deck 33 & you are correct.....the Custom has NO sterile Hotel Chain "feel". Our Massage Chairs are a huge hit for the weary travelers we host, they love them. Thanks again & we'll see you soon.. Sincerely, Rick B. Ross General Manager More

I'd like to think I'm not too fussy really; all I ask for is a comfortable bed and pillows, variable heating/cooling and cleanliness...most other things can be worked around. However, the room was far too stuffy and even though the air con was set as low as it would go (74f) there's no way on earth we achieved anything less... More

Dear Valued Guest, My sincere apologies for the issue with your A/C Unit. Unfortunately the Chillers went down during your stay & many of our Guests experienced the same problem. They are fixed now & running very well. We do have an automatic Gratuity added to Groups of 5 or more, I assume your Group was this size...? If not,... More
