Extremely clean
I arrived early and was upgraded to a Harborview at no additional charge. My room was extremely clean. The continental breakfast was very good each morning. The bed was very comfy and the room had a small coffee maker and refrigerator. The pool is heated, however I did not get the chance to use it. So much within walking distance and Ebikes everywhere downtown that can be easily rented. Front desk extremely friendly. I would stay here again.

Nice place!
It was really good. Not loud at night, no problems. Would stay there again for sure. Good location, close to the water, but not close to a coffee shop.

Overnight visit
Check in was amazing. They were very accommodating. The hotel room was very comfy and clean. The hotel itself is definitely older which made the traffic noise a bit problematic.

Clean room… only issue is at end room 314 which is close to parking lot and apparently close to other hotels laundry or machine room. Could hear noise all night long, for a light sleeper not good.

Great location, staff was very friendly and helpful. The place overall seemed dated, worn out and my bathroom sink didn't drain well.
Bathroom, this would be an easy repair
Standing water in sink.
Towel there for two days.

Two night getaway
Convenient location with easy freeway access yet right on the waterfront and near State Street (downtown). Older building so the bath area not up to date but management clearly makes the effort to maintain the property well. our top floor room had small balcony and nice park view with sliver of water view. Heated pool was a nice bonus. A really great restaurant (Toma) for dinner just next door.
