2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

very friendly staff, ultra modern furnishings that looked great but were uncomfortable to sit in. The air conditioner did not cool the room, when I complained they said it would be fixed by the time I returned from a walk but it wasn't. They were full so I couldn't switch rooms.

First of all I was BLOWN AWAY by the décor of this hotel. It has this really cool, chic design. The rooms themselves are very comfy and decorated in sort of a white-washed way, with some cute pops of color. The white walls/floors/ and bedding give the room a very clean look but manages to maintain a welcoming warmth. I... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Bungalow - the first time being in March of 2012. The rooms are well-appointed, and the bed is EXTREMELY comfortable, but there are some details that just aren't quite right. The "rain shower" shower head is simply too much water pressure to be pleasurable. There was an overly fragrant air fesherener smell... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Bungalow Hotel this past weekend. To have walked out of the bitter cold and into probably the sexiest lobby we've ever been was the first of many two thumbs-up!

The small boutique hotel in Pier Village is so nice and has such good service, I had to review it. The wonderful and warming gas fireplace in our room was much needed in this frigid weather we have right now (January, 2015.) The lobby is cozy too with a fireplace, vintage foosball table and pool table...so fun and different from... More
