    Bad customer service. Was told we could check in early over the phone but when we arrived we weren't allowed to. Aftet waiting hours we finally checked in and the room was not clean. So what were we waiting for? Terrible experience

    Location is key and this hotel overlooks the main street in Little Italy (India St) and near the plaza square. It’s an older hotel but our room was amazing with views of the square and we were near all the wonderful eateries. Parking is tight in the underground garage but gated. The rain shower and water pressure was the downfall though. It took twice as long to shower and hardly any water pressure for the 4th floor. Stay during a Friday night to take advantage of the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. I had no idea on the free breakfast and wish someone told me during check-in. The explanation by the staff of my amenities was lacking. But everyone was friendly and I’ll definitely stay here again when in Little Italy.
