    The hotel is to old and filthy the hallways smell really bad. The mattress covers are dirty. The parking lot supposed to be free for guests. And they charged $29 per day. I won’t recommend this hotel.

    5/5 Excellent

    Should’ve spent the extra 25/night elsewhere.

    Old , loud from construction. Self parking Lot has no access for bigger vehicles. Hated being there. Only positive is proximity to river walk

    4/5 Good

    We enjoyed our stay. It was a little loud due to the Marine Ball going on that night on our floor. They apparently even broke one set of the elevators because they can’t read and overloaded them. Fortunately, they have more than one set to use.
