"Good value. A generally great hotel stay, but the room needed better soundproofing and the layout was awkward. The bed was in the path of the door, and the hallway light shined in. We changed rooms, but the night clerk didn't inform the day clerk, which caused a bit of confusion.2015-11-23"

"We had a bad experience at this hotel and were surprised by all the extra taxes and fees. The carpet in the room was dirty, and the bath mat had black mold on it. We asked for a replacement and got one, but the used washcloths weren't replaced; we had to wait until the next night to get some. The walls in the room and bathroom were dirty, and we were uncomfortable and disappointed. Don't stay here.2018-10-13"

Great, professional valet service.2016-10-30"

"Clean, decent room, but the plumbing was noisy so it was hard to sleep. I could hear water running in other rooms, but it might not bother people who aren't as sensitive to noise. A little pricey for what you get, but not a bad stay overall.2017-10-13"
"Good location, especially if you use the Clipper ship for transportation. Charming older hotel. The room was clean and adequate for a comfortable stay, but it was by no means upscale. Great water pressure in the shower, though the hot water was finicky. The hallways were dated. Breakfast was also satisfactory, served in a lovely, sunny room. A pleasant, family-friendly place to stay.2017-06-30"

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.
