The room I booked was a bit small, but had all the necessary amenities: fridge, microwave, outlets with USB ports for charging phones or tablets. Exactly what we needed for a retreat with a $60 budget

We stayed for two nights. The room was quite nice and the women at the reception were very friendly. The hotel is located quite well, you can easily reach different parts of the city - e.g. Old Town, Mission Beach or the airport.

We came here for a small weekend get away and book the hotel on Hotels for tonight. When we arrived we had to call to get someone to the desk and that’s was fine but when we checked out we couldn’t reach anyone and there was a few people waiting to check out.

The room was clean and it was very modern decor which I liked. The room was pretty small but we were only there to sleep so we didn’t mind much. All together I would go back again.

Btw if you go you have to go to Better Buzz coffee, Mitch’s Seafood and Jimmy’s Favorite American Tavern. All walking distance. If you want comfort seafood Mitch’s is the place they have amazing crab cakes and clam chowder and Jimmy’s has a amazing brunch. Both are located by the harbor which gave us amazing views.

Clean updated rooms, excellent value for money. Easy location to get to sights, close to grocery store, coffee etc. No Laundry Facilities. They supply earplugs as its close to main road but we didn't need to use them. We checked out at 7am but no one there, called the number a few times but had to wait 45mins for someone to get there. Very limited parking, don't go out late as you won't get a park when you return!

Room Tip: Leave aircon on and you can't hear the traffic!

Very clean and updated. Extremely small rooms with no dressers. Shower was really cold and would not warm up. Not much water pressure either. Parking could be difficult on weekends, though. Great location. I would recommend and stay again if guaranteed a hot shower.
