    There was nothing to be liked

    Overall it was substandard.The features exept the TV were non existent. We spend some valuable time to get towels, clean pillow cases, blankets and hairdryer.The room was not made up during our 2 day stay. The staff of the hotel was unprofessionell and obvious understaffed.

    Location to ferry services and Jack London Square

    Tv didn't work after first night reported but didn't resolve no breakfast even though listed. No towels Staff didn't seem to care what we needed. Not interested in their guests. Trains run literally outside the front door all night. Could hear everything going on in room next door.

    My room was horrible. There was no soup and shampoo. In my friend's room was no ashtray. The hotel very close with railway and it is bad area. In my room №324 was bedbugs and now I have itch and covered with red spots. My friend had no problem with this but who knows how many rooms are having bedbugs. Probably they will handle it but anyway it is an indicator of very bad and not clean place. Also my card from room didn't work every day. I will not recommend to stay in this hotel.

    It was clean enough, and in a great location! Lots of things to discover in the neighbourhood.

    It was minimal - we had no trash can and 1 towel for a room with 2 beds. Next to the train tracks, which I actually enjoy but it could be a problem for others.

    Very close to ferry terminal & restaurants!

    Room had no towels or ice bucket. Toilet was clogged and had a funky odor. Once maintenance was called the problem was resolved immediately, however would have been nice to have a prepared room ready for us since the hotel wasn't that busy that particular night.

    Doing orders online

    The people at the desk tried to add $11 to my bill after I checked out because of taxes, we were booked online for $75 and then they told us we need to pay $85 per night with taxex, Then the person that checked us out, tried to get another $11 because of taxes.

    The location

    The rooms look as if management doesn't care; it also looks as if the clientele they service are drug sellers and users. The dressers have burn marks, the carpet us dirty, the curtains are dangling from the rods..... The rooms don't look sanitary.

    cigarette burn holes on comforter/sheets in a non-soking room, dirty, nasty

    I urge you to please delete this establishment from your site. The place is unkempt, dangerous and dirty. We left five minutes after checking into our room.

    The price.

    Failure to mention an amtrak train runs right down the middle of the street in front. Night and day with the attending whistles and noise. Ammenities for the hotel were non existant. We did not like the lack of cleanliness.

    Location is excellent.

    I work as a wilderness guide and sleep in the woods in a tent, on the ground about 200 nights a year. I do not need much to satisfy my needs, but this place I beyond dangerously unsafe and unclean. I put up several pictures on yelp if my experience and there are plenty of others with similar experiences. If it takes 4 requests to get towels in your room( cause there were no towels to begin with) and hair all over the pillows and mold in the bathroom to gross you out then you found the right place. I am never staying here again. Period.

    They offered a service online that didn't exist (shuttle to the airport). The office clerk had me wait in the lobby longer then I should. She found other things more important like filling paperwork rather then providing quick service. The operator informed me that he would help me locate transportation service online, I never heard back from him. The room looked nothing like the photos. The door had no security lock (chain or otherwise.) The toilet had a leak. The room seemed as if it had not been remodeled for over 20 years. Bad and old paint, chips on walls, chips on tub, sink, floors and more. I was very displease and unhappy. And the Amtrak train went by the building nearly every 5 minutes, keeping me up all night while it blew it's whistle. I couldn't place my feet on the carpet, filthy, filthy filthy. The pillow case smelled like cigarets, and you could smell pot in the hallway. It was a dump for crack heads. It was the most frightening night I had, for a female traveler.
