4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was clean and comfortable; staff helpful; hot breakfast; poor handicap parking area; my wheels kept getting caught on the rug (it was a good thing I had help); needs an accessible room. On our last day we had a peep show...I feel sorry for the people that have to live and work there.

This is a very cozy old hotel, with reasonable, low rates.They let me know they'll be renovating, so it will be even better soon. I really enjoyed my stay here- the staff were so friendly! I'll be coming here again for sure, when back in town.

Location of hotel was subpar (ie. homeless people, scared to go out at night) had to walk through dark alley to get to lobby. Overall the inside of the hotel was nice with new renovations. I recommend a couple sleeping bags as it might get a little chilly at night with the one thin sheet on the bed. Also noted,... More

I found my experience to be quite comfortable, quiet and relaxing. Fell asleep with the t.v. on, turned it off and there was still peaceful silence outdoors. Breakfast was amazing even though I paid extra for the sweet satisfying piece of steak with my eggs, hash browns, buttered toasts and complimentary sweet slices of orange. So please do them a...

Quiet if its not the weekend, not the best of locations. Good if your single and are a partygoer, but wouldn't recommend for family stays. Too seedy, friendly staff as can be expected, but mostly not good. Amenities are not kid friendly, catering to the local fanfare. Recommend staying but overall probably find better elsewhere. Kept up till 3 am... More

Even so advertised... More

Definitely requested a quiet spot to the front desk staff due to important exam the next day upon check in explained clearly already and he seemed affirmative so. But the point is the front desk staff ignored my request! The noise of baby crying from my next door not only one time but on and on feels like it never... More

The hotel is nicely maintained and the rooms are clean, but be aware that it is pawn shop alley in the vincinity of the hotel. Other than that security is good inside and they have a little lounge with video slots if you are into that sort of thing.

Price seemed reasonable, location was good.. none of that mattered after staying at this hotel. Their key cards weren't working so some poor guy was stuck running around manually opening rooms for everyone.. ridiculous.
