we stayed here on our last night after staying in napa and sonoma. i knew that this would be a budget place and had very low expectations.
like others have said, the parking is very tight. the clearance is 6' 5 so if you have an SUV or truck or van, don't plan on parking in the ramp (there are about 8 spots there). there is a little alley you can drive your car into and i saw a SUV there but i would never want to be tasked with parking a truck there - no way.
we were upgraded to a "suite" which was unncessary, but welcome. the guy at the counter (i think his name was Damon?) was very nice, knowledgable and helpful. the room had a sort of 50 or 60's feel and a clean but mothball type smell. i didn't sleep at all but my husband slept soundly. the windows were open and i heard every car drive by, every young person coming home from the bars, etc. all in all, i felt safe, the value couldn't be beat but i would only stay there again for the same scenario - one night before we take our early flight the next morning.
ps we left before 7 a.m. and there was a note on the door that the person would be back at 7:15...we didn't have their breakfast so we can't speak to that.
