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...

This is a 1950s hotel that has been remodeled sometime in the past. The first glance was okay--if quite overpriced. However, the flaws became obvious before long. Mold in the shower and mildew in the grouting, the shower head falling off the wall, wires visible below the bar light in the bathroom, capped pipes in the extra-large 'closet' sticking out... More

We stayed here after arriving from a midnight flight. We had to call the desk but they checked us in quickly. The hotel room itself is small but very clean and neat. There were only 2 pillows on the bed, which is fine, but if you're a pillow lover like I am then you may want to bring one. We... More
