    Service and Staff
    Property condition


    • Disliked: Staff & service

    Small rooms and very uncooperative and unresponsive staff. Would never stay here again. We requested multiple times for a late check-out but were outright denied (almost rudely) even when we were willing to pay for it . Had to contact Expedia who in turn contacted the hotel and let us know the charges for a 2 pm checkout which we ended up paying for. Even the housekeeping staff and janitor were unhelpful when we forgot keys in the room and when we asked them about the walking tour.

      The room was very nice, at some point in the past. It’s now just ok, not awful but not somewhere I’ll go back to. It smells like an old hotel with loud plumbing and heating.

      5/5 Excellent

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

      The staff was friendly and accommodating. As soon as we checked in they greeted us and gave us all we needed to know about the Gaslamp. We will love to come stay here again

      4/5 Good

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Clean and friendly but view was of a brick wall and other room windows. Other rooms with a view were smaller, so take your pick.

      No door 🚪

      Loved the room we had the king suite but ..... No door for any privacy and the bath door was not very good... always getting stuck. Other than that we had a great stay there
