Nice stay, good value

Very nice room, clean and comforable. Only problem was loud noise all night long from other guests. Slamming doors and yelling.

Great location; great price!

I really enjoyed staying at the SJAGH. the location is great, with a light rail station and a bus stop right in front of the hotel. There are a few places to eat within walking distance and downtown is only a few minutes away. Staff was extremely helpful too! I just wish they had a continental breakfast...

Hard to find, but worth it

Wish there was room service 24/7 but what hotel has that accommodation? :) The staff was friendly, the rooms where on the big side and the showers are pretty cool. All-in-all, good hotel and a cheap price.
