3/5 Okay

It was okay. An older building that needed some repairs. Check in and out required ringing a bell and waiting for someone to come to the window.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Room was disgusting. Sheets were paper thin with holes in them, hairs all over the sink, bathroom inside the sheets. You could tell someone had just finished using the bathroom because the toilet paper roll was jaggedly ripped and mostly gone. We leftโ€ฆabandoned the room and booked another room somewhere else. So disappointed.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Shabby outside, fresh inside
The room was fine, the outdoor upkeep up the hotel was degraded. Need new paint, paving, re-landscaping. Looks like a novel outside, but itโ€™s deceiving my run down looking. The room was absolutely refurbished, clean and modern.

Nice, affordable, convenient.
The place is super convenient to downtown Riverside, well maintained and very affordable. I really enjoyed the hotel's architecture. Having a door onto a balcony, though tiny, was nice in that I could open up the door to let enjoy the evening breeze. WiFi was excellent (there are plenty of hot spots throughout the property).
