Hurricane Douglas
The room was clean but the location was not too hot. Here's some not so good comments. No soap dish in the shower. Had to put the soap on the shower floor then remember to pick it up. 2) The Ilima Hotel parking gatage faced our room. A car alarm kept going off at all hours of the night. Also car tires leaving their parking garage screeched and squealed. 3) Homeless people hung around the area and were yelling. Good comments. Place was fine. 2) Staff was cordial. 3) Room was fine with a nice bathroom. Could use a desk. 4) With Hurricane coming, we felt safe. 5) Hotel is close to eateries.
