The people were really friendly and the room was clean. But you could hear every step the person in the room above took. You can also hear the traffic anytime a car drove by. Inexpensive and clean but not good if you actually want to sleep. My company made the reservation based on location and price.

Bathroom sink never drained. When told front desk, suggested I use plunger, never would fix it. No towels in room, couldn't understand when I went to get some. Finally got one, after many minutes of trying to get them to understand English.

Clean hotel for the money. However, the contents of my room were taken on my last night. The Front Office did little expect to explain that it was probably the cleaning staff. No assistance in recovery of the contents has been provided. No response from the Stone Villa web site regarding the theft and my loss. Staff is sullen and... More

Please.. this location is a last minute spot. i/e no Motel 6 or anything else. Service was a hostile experience, not friendly, not kind, not good. If you need a nights sleep go somewhere else. Great sushi place one block away. I will never stay here again or recommend. RUDE as NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

Just average, decent bed but trains nearby were loud for sleeping. Close to restaurants and not as clean as it could be. Trouble with room key and no customer service at the front desk. Not even a smile or thank you.

This is the type of place that keeps AirBnB in business. The renovations are superficial but thoughtfully executed; you will recognize your room from these photos, less the damage to the room (e.g., nightlamps) that should be replaced but haven't been. Window casing in the bathroom is not finished and has been that way a long time. Left "Do Not... More

Room was nice and clean; clearly renovated recently. Beds are quite comfortable. Checked in after 10pm and had to call to get someone to finally answer. Only 2 pillows on a king sized bed so ask for extras. Very quiet. Great for the money

I don't expect much for $90/night on the Peninsula, and for as clearly old as the structure is on the outside, I was pleasantly surprised by the money that was obviously put into modernizing the wall heater/AC unit, the brand new vinyl windows and shutters, and nice new bathroom fixtures. So much so that I was willing to overlook the... More

Indy management, kind welcome, mid quality for clean level and rooms quality. Better than I expected to have. Really poor Breakfast, with just orange juice, cofee/milk, bread and small jams. Here, only if no alternatives.

I was checking in around 10 pm, the lobby door was closed, so i had to check in at the window on a side. I understand that is their precaution, but waiting outside at night for 25 min to check in didn't make me feel safe. The lady stayed behind her desk yelling me questions from 15 feet away, then...
