        I will stay here again. It is a walking distance to Old Town Historic place and trolley/bus station. It is quite. I was on the aecond floor. Try to stay 3rd floor if you stay here so you wont hear a crazy woman above walking all nigh with high heals like top toeing.

        Good place, and good location!”

        Like many of the others reviews have stated, the place it's self is a little run down but the staff was great! Our room was HUGE and was clean. Run down was the only issue but we only slept here. We had no intention of spending all day in the room so the old and outdated stuff didn't bug us. The AC worked, the TV worked, the bathroom and fridge worked so we were very pleased! No heavy blankets or comforters so bring your own if you like extra cushy bedding. No breakfast due to covid (what else is new🙄) but plenty of places to eat within less than 5 min walking distance. Had great food, LOTS of drinks and walked safely back to our room each night!

        We stayed for 3 nights. It was a very spacious room for a family of 4. The first night our key card did not work for the room they first gave us but instantly changed rooms with a working key card. We stayed here because of the locality to MCRD. If your looking for a place to rest your head this is perfect. We also walked to Old Town. They had all kinds of restaurants and shops.

        We walked to Old Town from our hotel. We are seniors and it was a bit much for one but she was 80. I was 70 and in good shape so I had no problem. It was about 4 or 5 blocks. Place called Hungreys burgers on corner had great food.

        Friendly staff, good breakfast, additional fee for parking, crappy wifi”

        The staff were very friendly and there were freshly made waffles at the continental breakfast. The room was clean but the design was odd - why is the bathroom light behind the door inside the bathroom? I wouldn't stay again due to the parking fee and wifi so slow that I couldn't even check email half the time.

        Just one downfall is that when it’s raining navigating breakfast is hard with kids, as the tables are outside in the rain and the kitchen is tiny and also very wet and slippery

        I stayed here 9/13/19 thru 9/15/19. The place was ok. A little run down but not bad at all. Parking is terrible. Sue is a great front desk person. She's awseone. Very nice and very informative. I was going to travel to Mexico and she had very good suggestions. Thank you Sue. Give her a raise.

        Visiting during Covid 19 lock down makes rating a hotel difficult. Check in and out was done through night window glass panel. We wore face masks. Room was clean, but towels and sheets were of low quality.
