I had a great time! I'd echo all the reviews here - this place is 5 stars for the combination of convenience, price/value, and location. Checking in and out was incredibly easy, the hosts were always easy to reach, the location was central, and the price was a great value. Also i…

Hi Thomas, We are sorry you had this experience. We provide all guests with professional maid service that includes cleaning the room and bathroom, making the bed with fresh sheets and providing one clean towel per guest. We charge guests a one time cleaning fee to prepare the room for the next guest. This way we keep our costs down and our room rates lower than most. We appreciate your comments! You have inspired us to better serve our guests by providing an additional cleaning service fee upon request. Thanks! FYI - The air-conditioning has been repaired!

Lovely, quiet stay while attending a conference downtown. Very affordable and well kept, and was walkable to the conference/staple center. I didn't have time to enjoy the rooftop pool or gym, sadly. I would definitely stay here again.
