I'm giving this a five star because we had a great stay. We love the desk staff who were great from the outset and on a first name basis. They have a great deck by the pool to sit and have a drink. We grabbed a six pack of cans from across the street. We went to the attached Guapo... More

Older hotel but well maintained. Awesome staff that goes above & beyond to make your stay enjoyable!! Great location. Friendly neighborhood. Shops & restaurants easy to access either by walking, shuttles, buses or taxi. I stayed for a week & will certainly pick this hotel first for our next visit!!!

We booked this hotel for the first leg of our American adventure. We booked a room with two double beds and a rollaway bed. When we arrived they had a large group of people who wanted double rooms so we had a free upgrade to two rooms each with a king size bed, one had a rollaway in it. After... More

This cute little hotel is ok but I've stayed in better. The rooms aren't what they look like on the website. Parking isn't great. The best part to me was the restaurant behind hotel " Manny's & Olga's was GREAT! If you have kids with you if you choose to come to this hotel. They deliver, but the restaurant is... More

We had a 17 day stay. The room was small, but covered all our needs. The staff was very helpful and responded to all our requirements. Our room was reasonably clean and the maid service was attentive and also helpful. The Mexican restaurant next door is very good, both in food and service. Parking may be a problem, but the... More

Room was very small and when we arrived their was water on the floor in the bathroom from a leak in the ceiling which had a substantial bulge in it so it appeared that more water was on its way. Told the front desk and they moved us. Front desk people were consistently very helpful. Towels in bathroom were small... More

We didn't know what to expect when we pulled up, but we found the rooms to be cozy and comfortable. The staff was accommodating and the location is convenient to local restaurants. The room was a bit noisy with hearing rooftop air conditioners running outside our window. Plenty of channels on the TV (although none in HD). The front desk... More

This hotel has gone downhill since the last time I was there. Its dingier, greasy Cobb webs on the ceiling. We were above a Mexican restaurant and by the 3rd night I had had it with the mariachi music. Breakfast ok, basic. I have to say however that the staff is very nice and the location was great for our... More

My boyfriend and I were in town for an even in DC and chose to stay out of the city for cost reasons. This hotel was great, and about 30 minutes total to get into the city. Very clean, staff were friendly, and the breakfast was good- your standard waffles, hardboiled eggs, muffins, sausage and potatoes. We picked a single... More
