Quick stay in Dec.
Great location and suite, but room location quite noisy due to airplane flight path overhead starting at 6 am and thin walls/ windows Re street noise. Staff and breakfast were all very good.

The location of the hotel is great, within reasonable walking distance to the Gaslamp Quarter and Downtown. The hotel was clean, quiet and the room was spacious. The bathroom was a little small, but was very clean. Staff was more than helpful. I would stay there again.

Fair 4.0
disappointing
When I got to the hotel room, there was hair all over the bathroom and no towels. I had to come in with my own medical grade wipes and wipe everything down and ask that they clean the bathroom. They did not send anybody in the next day I again asked them to clean the bathroom and they didn’t clean it so I found the cleaning lady and ask her if she will clean the room. It was disappointing.

Bathroom missing body soap. Toilet looked like a public toilet, looks old. Elevator is dirty, shared with another property. I was double charged for parking initially. But was later refunded for both. Their shuttle is not available due to COVID. I read otherwise online, and so booked here to use this service to avoid other parking fees and driving.
