Myself and my husband stayed here for 4 nights in September 2014, the location is the best thing about this hotel, right in the heart of the gas lamp district, the room was clean but very small, the shower far to small and very dated, lifts very dated and really need updating, I know the lifts are in keeping with...

Pro: The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are tiny and old. Cons: The bathroom shower was too small to turn around in! We had a room on the street and the noise was ridiculous. Someone was playing music until 4 a.m. I know the hotel can't control that, but it contributed to the overall experience unfortunately. Again, super... More

The staff was very rude all around other than valet. We were told that Brian's had a 10% coupon since we were staying at the hotel but they were out of them at the moment, but we were told to let the restaurant know and they would still honor it if we showed them our key to the room. Well... More

This place was a nice location...and that's about it. My girlfriend had book this place for one night for my bday and we just needed a place to sleep. We were out for the most part of the day and we came back to sleep at night. We stayed in room 922, I wouldn't recommend staying in that room or... More

Stayed during the ESRI User Conference from Sunday through Friday. The rooms (had two adjoining rooms) were clean and all amenities were in place each day. They were a bit spartan and cramped, but I got a good rate, so it was hard to complain. The beds were very comfortable. The A/C worked very well, which was very welcome with... More

This hotel was dirty. Room chairs were stained and bathroom smelled of urine. I stay there only 8 hours to catch an early morning flight. I am a single woman traveling alone and did not feel safe. The night manger treated me with indifference. I was very afraid

I would have given 0 star if allowed. My friend's family and my family stayed here for three nights (Sun-Wedn) following Comic Con, and both had very poor experience regarding housekeeping and customer service, including: 1. Dead scorpion found in friend's bath room on first night; 2. Every room is supposed to have 2 bottles of water upon checkin. My... More
