Breakfast is deplorable. We take breakfast in a nightclub which is in the same building as the hotel. The sheets are dirty, the floor is dirty, everything is dirty. Everything seems dirty ... People at the reception are not friendly. The elevator has a bad smell. We were awakened by the fire alarm. We did not have the right to...

Noisy, dirty and old. A nightclub downstairs (in the same building! ) opened untill 2 am, old floorboards and thin walls will do the rest to keep you awake. After a 14hr flight from Sydney, I'd probably prefer to sleep in a car.

We stayed two nights. The hall was old fashioned and dark, the elevator stank and the room had probably never been renovated. The bathroom was REALLY small and the view not so exciting (a parking lot!). Moreover, it didn't seem very clean and there was one towel missing the first night. In one word: NO!

This is the worst hotel Ive ever been to!! I travel very often. When I arrived the area was horrible. A lot of homeless were loitering outside of the hotel. Myself & my gf walked into the hotel where we greeted by a woman (very rude & on the phone) who told us where our room would be & then...

Perhaps you can score free parking if you ask. A few blocks from the cable car. Restaurant a few doors down quite good. During high season they have breakfast included. Try to get rooms in back and as far up as possible since they have a night club.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night, and we checked out the very next day. It's very old and rundown, and feels very unclean. It's cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for here. If you can afford it, I would highly recommend staying somewhere else.
