Parking is very tight, but I was there early with a small car so I was okay, also parked with front of car out so was able to get out of crowded parking easily in early morning.

Stayed for 2 nights. They have the best costumer service especially Monica. She made sure our stay was perfect. Gave us directions to the zoo. Called us a taxi. I highly recommend this to everyone. The location is just perfect.

We have stayed here 4 times in the past year, nothing fancy but a good location. Walking distance to Little Italy and the harbor. We stayed in room 200, ground floor by the office. Newly remodeled,clean and quite.Parking is a problem, don't move your car after 7 PM or you may not get a space.

We travelled here with our 2 yr old son within 10 minutes of being here we decided the cot was not good enough for our son to sleep it. Dead bug in the cot and on our bed we slept on our beach towels. The... More
