Beds so low it's lile sleeping on palets

Would recommend Wed, Oct 28, 2015
Room was clean and the bed was soft but but it was so close to the ground it was difficult to get up off of it. We only saw the pool upon leaving (it is in a separate location) and the staff did not mention it at check in so we did not use it. Bathroom was clean and stocked with good things. I might stay there again because it is convenient for the airport.

Good Deal for Short Stay

Would recommend Sat, Oct 10, 2015
I was traveling for business and happy to find a cool, styylish room. Utilitartian, modern, stylish and up to my standards. Spacious clean room was much better than anything for the price in the area. Bed and linens were cood quality. The breakfast buffet in the lobby was gratefully received, fresh and good.

The hotel was very good for the price. I've never been in such an empty hotel room with the bed on the floor.

Custom....for someone else

Would recommend Tue, Sep 22, 2015
This trip was spontaneous and though we were looking for a specific area this location was just close enough. Arriving and trying to valley was a little confusing due to the high amount of tourist and busses that shouldn't be allowed entry in my opinion as the area is rather small. The two front desk attendants were nice but didn't seem genuine but it could've been the consumers butting into other conversations. The room was very odd. The bed so low the was not comfortable. And the door to the bathroom did not allow for much space. If i had to i would stay again

Hotel has seen better days

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 1, 2015
The Custom Hotel -- while centrally located -- is in need of a major upgrade. The rooms show lots of wear and tear ... dented and dirty furniture, dirty carpets, dirty and disgusting bathrooms. Families should be advised to stay away. It's really only good if you are traveling alone, plan to use the room solely as a jumping-off point and need to stay near the airport.

Nice Family Trip

Would recommend Wed, Aug 26, 2015
Our hotel stay was nice. The only complaint we had, was that it was a little far from the action but that's also not a bad thing. Would definitely recommend the hotel for the price and accessibility to the airport.

Not good

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 4, 2015
Terrible place to stay, after paying almost $250 a night we arrived to find we we staying on a floor of the hotel that was under construction, getting off the elevator looked like a horror movie, vacant rooms with doors wide open and random wires hanging from the ceiling, the carpet had not been vaccumed, during booking we were never informed that we could be placed on a floor that was under construction, not to mention the morning noise caused by the renovation workers. At check out the staff never even asked how our stay was.

could be better

Would recommend Sat, Aug 1, 2015
Hotel is close to the airport after that you have to pay (parking and breakfast). Room was clean with a euro modern feel but underlit and dark. Close to grocery, coffee, dining and bars. Overall I would have felt better appreciated as a patron if amenities like parking and continental breakfast were provided.

Custom hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jul 28, 2015
It was a nice hotel for what you paid for. Had a nice pool with a fire pit. The up side is its close to a lot of shops and food so don't have to drive to much. The staff was friendly and helpful. They did not have a gym which was a down side and the rooms smelt like paint but it is understandable since they were just remodeling.
