Easy to find, with good parking and easy ingress and egress. Noisy location, no extra chain or locking bar on the inside of the room's door.

Extraordinarily clean and comfortable. Fridge, microwave, iron & board, coffee maker ... everything needed for a comfortable stay.

It is close to SAP and has many coffee shops within walking distance.

Great location. Definitely retro but clean and cozy bed. We loved it and would definitely stay again!

10 minute walk to SAP center. Restaurants within walking distance. Clean and safe. Super nice staff. Great deal!

Great location...walking distance to SAP Center. Nice to have a fridge and microwave. Comfortable bed.

The staff was very accommodating! The room was comfortable, quiet, clean, and close to great places. The experience was exactly what we wanted and needed!!

surprised to see a quality maintenance on the heart of the city

Ok for the money but too noisy. Doors doest close properly and noise is coming thru cracks. Cofee machind was nasty. Still had coffee bag from previous guest

Seemed to be recently renovated. However, some parts that hadn't been refurbished were grimy, including light switches. Fridge, coffee maker, and microwave were a nice welcome touch. Rooms need an alarm clock, though. Try to get a room on the 2nd floor. I stayed on the 1st floor, and the idiots on the floor above me were so heavy-footed that I would wake up in the middle of the night every time they had to get out of bed to pee.

The exterior is dated and run down. The room I had was nicer than I expected based on the exterior. The shower is tricky - the gizmo that pushes the water to the shower head is hidden. I had to wake the motel staff to explain, and then he gave me attitude, and said he had told me at check-in, which I don't believe he did. Location is great. Close to good places for coffee and food within walking distance.

It was a one night stay. Other than someone repeatedly slamming their door shut at 4am and waking me up it was a decent stay. The room was clean and fairly recently remodeled. The bed was okay. Not the best I've slept on. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a low cost place to stay after a hockey game. Free parking!

Rooms were clean and it was a convenient location. Much cheaper than other motels nearby.

Great location, highly walkable area near many shops and restaurants. Clean, well kept.

It's next to a public parking lot that gets very loud at night. Had a car with custom exhaust idling 3' from my head on the other side of the wall at 3AM for an hour. Staff isnkice and rooms are good but probably won't stay there again due to the loudness.

I'm really happy with my stay. The room has plantation shutters instead of curtains and granite in the bathroom and a comfortable king size bed. It was nice and clean and a good value for being a motel rather than a hotel. I also noticed that they have rules posted of quiet time after 9:00pm, which I appreciated since I'm there for business. Good restaurants nearby which is a bid plus! The owner was friendly and asked if I was happy with my room! I will be back next month.

I got there late and no one was at the desk, I waited and realized the attendant was the strange man i saw standing on the corner smoking when I pulled into the parking lot. He didn't speak much English and I believe was also chewing tobacco. The room stunk so bad like old food and cigarettes. I was so tired I just wanted to go to bed, but there was hair in the sheets, so gross!!!!!! Room was very basic and very old. I called the front desk and no one answered. I stayed because it was late 1-2am and had no where else to go. The next morning I realized the shower didn't work properly. I had to call the front desk, I did get an answer after many rings. And this attendant also did not speak English. Such a waste of money, I can't believe they are charging those prices for that room, and lack of service.
