8/10 Very good

Nice guest house. Stayed in the Birds of Paradise room (2 queen beds w/ bath and mini fridge) and everything was fine. There was a cleaning service everyday and the AC works great. There's only 3 channels on the tv, but it is a smart tv and has apps like Nextflix and Hulu that you can sign in on. Wifi is decently fast. Water pressure was terrible. Not sure if it was the showerhead or if it was the water, but there was barely any hot water flow. The sink was fine, so it might be a room specific issue. Otherwise stay was great. Maeven St, has a lot of potholes and can be quite dark at night. I'd recommend coming back before sundown on foot or coming back by car/taxi.

The property is always a great stay for the cost. Perfect location quiet and safe. The property is clean and well kept. I would suggest a vending machine given the pandemic so guests esp overnighters can access the basics.

10/10 Exceptional

The property was clean. The room was clean and nice. The security staff was pleasant and welcoming. Because of covid there was no meal service. Overall I had a good experience. I would revisit and recommend this hotel.
