I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the reviews, but decided to stay at The Homestead anyway. I reserved a "small apartment" with a separate bedroom and kitchen. There were three hot water radiator-heaters in the unit and each worked fine. The place was definitely vintage but reasonably maintained and clean.
My only real complaint is the amazing amount of cold air that blew in through the bathroom window, around the window frame. (It was winter; probably lots of hot air in summer.) Otherwise the location is perfect for someone who cooks; only one block to Whole Foods Market with the hotel parking structure one half block away. I would definitely stay there again.
