    Good

    The room was clean and set up good. Friendly staff.

    Recycle your towels. They won't replace them. Red Light District. Was concerned for my wife and Granddaughter's safety while I was gone. Plenty of coffee in office, but limited in room to only first day.

    The area, cleanliness was good.

    Lobby too small. Only 2 small seats. Guests asked for more of what was offered at breakfast and clerk said they were out. 1 of 3 days bed was not done. When there is a convention taking place at the SAP Center, you should be better prepared.

    Fabulous

    It was very convenient to where I was going, Staff was very friendly. The rooms were dark so I made it easy to slept. Not a lot of traffic going through it because it was gated, so felt much safer

    Fabulous

    We liked that it was quite,there wasn't a lot of traffic around the complex.

    What we didn't like about our stay was the room we had a jacuzzi in the room and as the instructions said do the Jets didn't work. Other than that the stay was good.

    Stuff not very helpful and distracted. Front desk would watch YouTube videos while breakfast buffet runs out of essentially everything. Generally, the room was quite run down. Refurbishment needed.

    First room we checked into smelled like an ashtray. We asked to be moved. The second room the wallpaper was peeling, no smoke alarm, chipped tiles in the bathroom, lumpy bed. Our room was also on the street, so the sirens and traffic was extremely loud late at night and in the morning.
