I loved the staff and they have the puppy mascot! Coming from a dog mom herself! Right next to little Italy with the most amazing roof top views of the ocean!

Room was very small. Our toilet would not flush. Water pressure was nonexistent. Towels were very worn. Definitely could use updating.

It was noisy starting at 7am. There was a parking lot right outside my door with a forklift and truck backing up with the back up alarm. The door also let cold air in all night.

incredible location, good staff and efficient rooms, but very tight spaces in room, hallways/corridors a bit tired and runs more like a motel after you get past entrance.

Convenient location to the airport and downtown with friendly staff. Older hotel with some upgrades; louder as rooms do open to outside corridor (with parking lot below). Everything in my room was unplugged and could have used another blanket/comforter over thin sheets! Does include breakfast.
