3/5 Okay

Hotel was closing so our reservation was transferred to their sister hotel so we really can’t review

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
We booked with a different hotel and found out that it be closed and was moved to a this motel. The location was close to little italy and walking distance to harbor. But the hotel was close to the train track. so if you had the window open you could hear it and the planes taking off from the air port also. The room was ok but smelled. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The only good thing about my stay was the location. I was not informed it was the last weekend open for business, the rooms were bare minimum. I dealt with long wait time to check in, had no iron/microwave/fridge, phone didnt work moving crew everwhere, their trucks blocked all the cars from leaving. 1st time ever, I experienced an awful hotel stay. The manager had the nerve to deny what was going on when I complained to hotels .com thankfully accomadated my complaint. Good thing they are closed down now!

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
not worth proximity to downtown
This place is cheaper than other places in the area. However it is on the corner of a busy road and sandwiched between the railway and two giant construction projects. There were construction workers at our bathroom window, and a giant pit nextdoor for a new building going in. The room was barren, and not simple and friendly like the photos. There were no headboards on the beds, and no nightstands/lamps and no dresser. No cute green pillows. Just holes and faded spots on the walls where this stuff probably used to be. It felt a bit creepy, and luckily I was staying with some friends otherwise I would have been nervous. There was a tv (although we didn't try using it) and there was a coffee maker, an iron and a lamp squeezed onto a nook in the wall. I would recommend staying further away from downtown instead of going for the less expensive price. I paid $130/night and consider it a total ripoff and a lesson learned. I would not recommend this place.
