My friend and I stayed here for only one night in order to attend a concert at The Fillmore. We were both pleased with the location, our room, the free parking, and the service. Because of some of the other reviews, we were a little concerned, but our room was much better than we expected. We could walk down the street, turn a corner, and be either at the theater or the beach. It was a relief to not be forced to drive anywhere or pay for parking! The man that checked us in was very helpful with directions and friendly, the room was quite clean, the A/C was awesome, the 2 large mirrors in the room were great, the shower was hot, the fridge and room itself were spacious, and the fact that we could quickly walk back to the hotel after the concert in less than 3 minutes was fantastic, especially in heels! One of the interesting things at this hotel is that they ask you to leave your car key with the front desk. Needless to say, I was a little confused...until the next morning. Cue very early check out, before 6:30 AM early, and it finally made sense when my car was blocked by 2 other vehicles, and the front desk concierge had to physically remove the two other cars from the lot so I could get out. Talk about great service~ In addition to that, there are lots of things within just a mile's radius. Drugstores, restaurants, pizzerias, etc. and with other families staying at the hotel and people walking around, it felt safe for two college girls. If i had to point out some minor things that bothered me, it would have to be the curtains. They never fully covered all of the windows, so I always felt like somebody could see inside our room through the gaps at some point. That and the racket outside our room from the custodian at 6:00 AM. Although, we were up at the time, so we didn't mind it much. Apart from those, it was great! Worth the money just for the location itself! Would definitely recommend and stay again :D
TL;DR-Awesome location, great service, free parking, recommend!
