The name is now the Waterfront and this place is very rough, there's no doubt about that. There are a lot of problems and the place is in almost total disrepair. I stayed here for two weeks to work a job in the area and because of over 2000 contractors in the area along with a huge car show and... More

I left a prized item in my room when I checked out. Realizing the loss the next day, I called. They had it! They said they would ship it. ......They never did. I have called several times and it is always "it is on the way," or " I will check into it." Don't leave anything behind that you cherish.... More

My room was clean, comfortable, and furnished appropriately. The guest staff was prompt, reliable, friendly, nice. One of the best reasonable budget hotel in Georgetown. I love that place. I stay there every weekend.

Brits on a road trip in the States, looking for a one night stopover. Main building looked interesting, though a little run down, but we took a chance. Staff were helpful, but the room we were given smelt INCREDIBLY musty. On the plus side, there's a great Mexican restaurant just along the road (the El Cerro Grande), and at the... More

I've stayed here for years and it has gradually gone down hill in appearance and amenities. New owners last year are trying to bring it back to the way it was in it's heyday. People were powerwashing outside ceilings and doors last year and got water in the cardkey locks. They still didn't work. Folks were working on them this... More
