The property is old, but the room was clean and had fridge, microwave and ironing board. Had to get hairdryer from the office. The cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful. The woman who checked me in was very nice but i did not see her after that, instead there was a man working the rest of the five day stay..he seemed to be grumpy. For the amount of time I spent in the room it was good. Quiet and in a great location near Little Italy and one block from the bay.

Great location, good price. The man checking us in was very nice. We found a better price online so pulled it up and booked it. The site said total price due at checkin is: $$ The clerk received our reservation, asked for my credit card to hold for incidentals only. He even stated that he made sure there weren't any additional charges that would be added and we were all set. 6am the next morning I received a text from my cc company stating a fee had been charged to this hotel. Went to inquire and it was the same man who checked us in. He was not nice this time and acted like he told us about the fee, how dare we inquire about it and was mean. His personality did a 180 from check in to check out. This was just irritating. The positives were price, location and FREE parking (wait, maybe this was the hidden resort fee charge)

This is an older property, a little worn, but in a great location and at a decent price. Be aware that the rate doesn’t include a “service fee” (for what service, one wonders?). Friendly staff. Decent bed. Not terribly noisy. The hot water never arrived. No WiFi working.
