Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 366 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel, pleasant experience Staff was great, room was clean and comfortable. also there are a number of places to order food, or just a short walk away which very convenient. would recommend. June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walking distance from the stadium and quiet! This was me and my wife's second time staying here. We go to a 3-day rock festival every year. We love that it is close to the MAPHRE stadium and that we can walk there. Normally I'm a budget hotel person, but the extra cost of this hotel is worth saving on daily parking and the time saved by simply walking. I don't know if there were many after parties in the rooms here after the concert let out. We certainly didn't here them if there were. We enjoy the quiet time when we get back. The staff here is always very friendly and makes you feel welcomed and at home. I'm paranoid of getting bed bugs, so I check first thing. The room was spotless and clean of them. It's been a couple weeks and no bites. Overall, it is a great experience and I will likely be coming back next year. June 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Service! Great beds! Great stay! While this hotel is right next to the large soccer stadium, its customer service MORE than makes up for a little noise from sports fans! (Be aware - you WILL hear the announcers, music and fan noise from the soccer stadium next door ~ it quit about 10:45 that night, though. Can easily be drowned out by A/C running). We selected this location online, never having been here before. We were warmly greeted the moment we stepped in the door! The front desk staff was amazingly helpful, ALWAYS present (which was good, as my son was nervous about security) and always friendly. The beds were incredibly comfortable and made for a very good night's rest! This property's attention to small detail (calling us by name) was greatly appreciated! They had large plastic balls available for anyone's use in the pool and was very helpful, as we normally forget pool toys while traveling! Rooms were spotless; water was piping hot; free breakfast had hot food and filled us up! Breakfast crew person was amazingly friendly and even prepared a snack bag for my son to take on the road! Very comfortable, extremely good customer service and attention to small details made this an EXCELLENT property! June 1, 2016
