My friends and I stayed here during the summertime. We got there a little early so we didn't mind waiting to get our room. Check in is usually at around 4 and they made us wait till 5:30pm! That wasn't the worst of it! When we were all in the room the next day just hanging out on the balcony,... More

Spent several weeks looking for a place to stay. Read hundreds of reviews. Finally chose this hotel mainly for location. Couldn't have made a better choice. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and helpful. (esp Winnie) The room was perfect; It was clean, and I loved the set up: we had a small kitchenette with a microwave, a toaster... More

I was a little nervous after reading a lot of reviews on here. However, overall it was a nice hotel. It is not The Hampton or Hilton, but you also don't pay a Hampton or Hilton price. Room is small but had the exact essentials for sleeping and changing (really all we used it for). The free passes that came... More
