No hot water for showers, warm at best. WiFi doesn’t work. I couldn’t find any staff on the premises when trying to check out. I even called and no answer. I probably wouldn’t stay here again if there are similar motels in the same price range.

Quick check in the staff was great clean room comfy bed nice tv no complaints imma simple guy with simple needs the only thing is the shower it took me a while to figure out how to work it the trick is to pull the lever from the spot in the big tub to make the shower head work

Easy to find, with good parking and easy ingress and egress. Noisy location, no extra chain or locking bar on the inside of the room's door.

Extraordinarily clean and comfortable. Fridge, microwave, iron & board, coffee maker ... everything needed for a comfortable stay.

It is close to SAP and has many coffee shops within walking distance.

Great location. Definitely retro but clean and cozy bed. We loved it and would definitely stay again!

10 minute walk to SAP center. Restaurants within walking distance. Clean and safe. Super nice staff. Great deal!

Great location...walking distance to SAP Center. Nice to have a fridge and microwave. Comfortable bed.

The staff was very accommodating! The room was comfortable, quiet, clean, and close to great places. The experience was exactly what we wanted and needed!!

surprised to see a quality maintenance on the heart of the city

Ok for the money but too noisy. Doors doest close properly and noise is coming thru cracks. Cofee machind was nasty. Still had coffee bag from previous guest

Seemed to be recently renovated. However, some parts that hadn't been refurbished were grimy, including light switches. Fridge, coffee maker, and microwave were a nice welcome touch. Rooms need an alarm clock, though. Try to get a room on the 2nd floor. I stayed on the 1st floor, and the idiots on the floor above me were so heavy-footed that I would wake up in the middle of the night every time they had to get out of bed to pee.

The exterior is dated and run down. The room I had was nicer than I expected based on the exterior. The shower is tricky - the gizmo that pushes the water to the shower head is hidden. I had to wake the motel staff to explain, and then he gave me attitude, and said he had told me at check-in, which I don't believe he did. Location is great. Close to good places for coffee and food within walking distance.

It was a one night stay. Other than someone repeatedly slamming their door shut at 4am and waking me up it was a decent stay. The room was clean and fairly recently remodeled. The bed was okay. Not the best I've slept on. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a low cost place to stay after a hockey game. Free parking!

Rooms were clean and it was a convenient location. Much cheaper than other motels nearby.

Great location, highly walkable area near many shops and restaurants. Clean, well kept.

It's next to a public parking lot that gets very loud at night. Had a car with custom exhaust idling 3' from my head on the other side of the wall at 3AM for an hour. Staff isnkice and rooms are good but probably won't stay there again due to the loudness.

We apologize for your inconvenience. Our water heaters are set at regular temperature, you have to understand due to very cold weather it does take time to get it to hot water. For WiFi, you should/could have called the front desk and we could have helped you with the tech support number. I apologize for your inconvenience with the checkout, I had to set out for 15 minutes and I did put a sign at the front desk " We will be back in 15 minutes. I hope you give us one more chance to make your stay more comfortable. Also, our rooms are much lower than other Motels charging in the are. You won't find this price anywhere in the area.
