The property itself is good for what it is but I was not expecting a guest house, rather than a hotel. The host was professional and the house was very clean and organized. However, I found the advertisement on Expedia to be misleading in a number of ways. For example, the ad says ‘on-site parking’. The reality is you park on the street. You are required to remove your shoes when entering the building and this was not mentioned in the ad, not was the $100 cash deposit you have to give the host. The bathroom was dedicated to my room but I had to walk through the common area to use it, etc. Small things overall but I would suggest more transparency on the ad. I was told by the host that I ‘should have known’ it was a private residence as it was ‘much cheaper’ than a hotel. This is not accurate as the La Quinta by Wyndham was the same price but I opted for Better Bed as it had a slightly nicer photograph of the bed. Anyway, it certainly was good for a guesthouse choice overall.

First time staying with Better Bed and I must say that it's definitely worth the value. The property, lobby, and room is peaceful, clean, and comfortable. The host is accommodating, fair, and friendly. The home is set up nicely, clear signage, and well sanitized. You receive your own home and room key for privacy and ability to come and go as you please. The value for what you receive is excellent and surely Better Bed will full your needs whether its for one or more nights.
