The staff was very helpful. We were booted from another place super early due to plumbing issues and we got lucky and could check in super early. Beautiful place. Would stay there again. Love the coffee option and the water filling station!

Location is great for going around and seeing different attractions. This hotel is right in front of River walk. The hotel is bare minimum and does not have basic amenities. Room with kitchenette does not have any utensils or cutlery in the room and not provided by the hotel.
