"Close to Balboa Navy Hospital. The room was clean, but the AC was loud and I could hear a lot of traffic noise. Most of the drawers and cabinets were missing their handles. Worst of all, the hotel had no hot water. The staff said the problem would be fixed in 3 hours, but there was still no hot water in the morning. I had booked for 12 days but left after less than 24 hours. Stay somewhere else.2016-09-06"

There were crumbs on the chair, and the towels were discolored. The toilet ran. After 30 minutes, we decided to leave and find a better place to stay.2016-06-28"
"People smoked outside my room door, and smoke came in through the gap under the door. The wireless Internet at this hotel was the absolute worst. No airport shuttle, and the taxi cost $33. I'd never stay here again and don't recommend it.2015-12-24"

"Terrific location. The mattresses were terrible; I could hear the springs popping, and if I sat on the edge of the bed, I'd roll off. The hotel clerks were never helpful when I asked a question, but the bellhops and valets were excellent. Parking fees were ridiculous.2015-08-12"

"Located in a very popular tourist area, so if you want quiet, ask for a room near the back of the building. Our room was compact, but extremely comfortable and well thought out. It was perfect for a solo traveler or a couple not planning to spend much time at the hotel.2016-05-17"
"The hotel was old. The room was small and had an old window AC and steam radiator. The shower was small and there was no hot water. At least the bed was fine. The elevator was gated. Friendly staff. Next time I'll pay a little more and stay at a better place.2019-09-28"
"The wireless Internet didn't work in my hotel room. The elevator was difficult to use. Find another place to stay.2017-09-12"
"Old hotel. AC was noisy and didn't cool the room. It was replaced the last day of our stay, but that just left dust hovering in the room. Bathroom was dated and had poor lighting. The shower was too small, and the fan was too loud. Good housekeeping, though. Elevator door was hard to open. Brian's Restaurant staff wasn't friendly. Don't stay here.2015-02-18"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
