right across from North Beach and minutes from the Aircraft Carrier museum. Room was OK nice to have a fridge and microwave in the room. Would have rated a bit higher if they offered a continental breakfast.

Not much to look at, but it's clean and smells nice. I didn't need to spend much time in the room, so I didn't mind the sparse furnishings. There is a microwave and fridge which came in handy.

The staff was friendly, the hotel needs some minor repairs and some cosmetic repairs(shower curtain was yellow, tiles cracked, holes in...

Too close to railroad tracks and street. Trains come by several times per night and blow their air horns many times behind the motel rooms.

The room was old with cracked paint and tiles. The carpet was dirty and shabby. The room and bathroom were dirty. Do not stay here unless a kid on Spring Break.

You are not paying for a 3 or 4 star hotel, so if you keep that in mind , this place is will work. Train tracks close by and the motel is next to a truck stop. Thin walls , below average breakfast BUT , it is free parking while you are on a cruise, saving you some money if...

rooms were very clean and the staff very nice. The only down side to this hotel is the train that runs through the night right behind it honking its horn repeatedly. Other than that beds were comfy and the coffee good.
