I want to first say that I did enjoy my stay at Hotel Metropole and found my room spacious, the fireplace was a plus and housekeeping was done properly. The breakfast had some organics as well, which was appreciated. What I didn't like was the location of my room . And my "Deluxe" room with a king bed was supposed...

Very cute place with a fantastic arcade downstairs. The mini-bowling is a must. It's in the back end of a small market. It was loud which made it tough at night, but that could have been just our room. We were behind a loading dock of a Vons.

I was so excited to stay here after reading so many positive reviews and seeing the pictures online. But the tiny courtyard view room (#310) was definitely not worth what we paid for it (granted we had the birthday discount, but this room was lacking for even a "cheap" room). We had to ask for the promised bathrobes, there were...

Stayed here for the first time March 2017. Was not disappointed. Large, comfortable, clean room was exactly as shown on website. Enjoyed ocean view from the balcony. Hotel is just a few steps from shops and restaurants. Friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone.

We stayed in a Deluxe Ocean View Room with a beautiful view. This hotel is centrally located. The staff were friendly. The hotel was immaculate. We had our daughter's wedding at the hotel and the venue/staff could not have been more helpful and professional. The pop-up restaurant next to the Hotel, "Zest" was amazing. The dinner was delicious.

We stayed in a Deluxe Oceanview Room with a fireplace. We loved every part of this hotel. Every person we encountered was friendly and efficient. The room was large and we loved that it had no carpet. The rooms are over a market area where there are cafes, shops and live music. We loved the atmosphere of this hotel. The...

The hotel was lovely small in overall size compared to Vegas hotels but nothing was small once inside. Beautiful views, gorgeous rooms. I would have to say my one and only complaint would have to be the bathrobes, I wanted GMG big plush robes, but what I got was regular robes besides that the hotel was amazing in every way....

Our stay was perfect. Just a couple days on the island using the mid-week package and no complaints. The only negative about our "deluxe" room was that there was no mini fridge and no coffee maker. Pretty strange to not have either in a hotel room. Other than that, very lovely.

We arrived on Monday and checked out Wednesday. We were booked for a king room and asked for an upgrade upon arrival, I've never done that, and was excited when we were granted one! Our room was well appointed with a king bed, fire place, balcony, and plenty of space. Our room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The decor is...

“Room 402 had nice view.”

“Coffee table was peeling and didn't fit with the niceness of the room, Outside deck chairs uneven resulting in rocking unless wedged with something to even out. For the cost we expected a coffee maker in the room. With an injured foot it was difficult to get to lobby for coffee. On a positive note the staff was superb and very helpful and courteous.”
