3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
I used to like this property when it was still Candlestick. Used to be really clean and looks new and that’s why I’ve been using it for several times. Now it looks different. There was a leatherette chair that was all worn out that greets you the moment you get in. There was no tissue paper ready in the bathroom I had to look at the cabinets to install in it’s holder. There was a half empty bottled water which looks like was left by mistake by whoever cleaned the room. The bed cover didn’t look fresh but looks like was used previously with creases instead of looking smooth like a fresh new cover. After about lying in bed for about an hour, even saw a gnat in the blanket. Overall, totally disappointed with the room and I don’t think I want to use this hotel again.

The staff is very courteous, effective and well trained. The property, while older seems well maintained. Cigarette butts outside the side door are unpleasant.

The room was nice but the comforters were worn out and torn. The rugs throughout the property were dirty and there was no reception area to speak of. The computer in the lobby was good as were the laundry facilities which I would write as excellent.
