Imperial Inn

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

room was very clean and everything worked right. only thing wrong was a used tissue under the table. everything else was great

This place is just getting too run down, even for the favorable price. Bathrooms are horrible, elevator has been broken for 3 years, carpet too old & stained. Furniture is something out of a second hand store. Staff tries to accommodate....but can't overcome the facility drawbacks at this point.

Top bed cover were dirty with stains, bathroom was dirty at tub (dust and hair) from previous stay. Sheets were clean and pillow cases. Entertaiment center was dusty. Place could improve in cleaniness. Place is aged but who cares about that, I just wish it was cleaner. Next time I'll bring my own cleaning equipment and sheets to sleep more comfortable. Traffic is the worse at 8pm to get here from SF (getting on bridge and cross took 2hr). Maybe it was a bad day /shrug. No elevator and sleeped in third floor, hard to go up the stairs after a 20mile hike from previous day jaja.

Very bad location, rooms smell horrible and very depressing environment
