We checked in today. I never write a bad review but I had to for this one. I reserved this hotel based on other reviews but it could be that we are in the middle of Covid-19 and I pay more attention to sanitation. We got here for a two day get away for my kids. I first sanitized all the places that my kids could touch and I got grossed out with the phone, and the the AC controller as well as the door knob. Then I noticed a big stain on the bed curtain, probably pee from a dog that they didn’t even bother to change. My phone fell accidentally behind the fridge container I picked it up with lots of dust and had hair on. I went to open the curtains to get some light the dust from the curtains came to the room not mentioning all the windows were extremely dirty on the outside. I would never come back here. Read less

Just stayed her last week and it was an incredible hotel to experience. Right near the Gas Lamp district. An historical place to stay. If looking for food, I recommend Nicki Rottens, they have a fabulous breakfast burger.

Stayed for a night. Everything in the hotel is cool. The restaurant also offers some quality food. But the hotel room is very small and packed. There is no bathtub in the bathroom. Hotel staff was friendly and acommondating.

Beautiful clean and food was great! A short walk to the water . Great coffee shop next door too. Comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. We also had a dinner and a breakfast voucher which was very nice. We felt safe in the area it is located in. The staff was very hospitable
