Negative Reviews

Can get noisy

One of the downsides of this hotel's location in the Gaslamp Quarter is the high levels of noise found there. Guests mention that some of the rooms face out on Walker Street and the levels of noise disturbance can get quite high at times. It seems that the rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter, so try and secure one of these if possible when booking.

Standard of accommodation could be better

Guests are disappointed with some aspects of the accommodation. They would like to see a better standard of cleanliness and feel parts of the hotel need refurbishment. Also, the televisions don’t always work properly which is a source of annoyance.

Poor Wi-Fi

According to feedback, the free Wi-Fi service is sometimes slow and difficult to use.
