This is not a hidden gem, though it is relatively hidden. It need not be -- having the basics of a good night's stay for relatively short money in this well-touristed city. The one bed room I stayed in had a moderately comfortable bed (with absurdly large, hard pillows that I could not use). The windows were new, easy to... More

There's a reason why it's cheap, don't stay here! Run down and in need of an update. On a noisy street with questionable people in the area. We had a room with two double beds, rooms cramped and TV reception poor. Rooms in need of a paint job.

If I had paid half of what I did this weekend to stay at this inn than I would find the following acceptable: sketchy people hanging around the building, dirty rooms/ uncertainty of cleanliness, lack of professionalism, lack of feeling safe, tv that didn't work. The reason I chose this accommodation was mostly for the free parking and the pictures... More

YA GUS's! Tucked away in a neato neighborhood I'm glad I got to discover... More

This hotel is located in a gentrifying neighborhood. You will encounter hipsters and street people, not a big deal if you come from a big city. Check in was quick and the guy from Vancouver was very helpful with maps and places to see. However the other guy at night isn't very friendly. Even though we passed each other a... More

Everything about this hotel/inn is acceptable but we never expected we would find a 4 story hotel without an elevator. To be fair it is an older structure that would be costly to retrofit but for older travellers at the very least ask to be placed in a first floor room. Even these rooms require a one flight climb from... More

I rented a room for a week on a trip here. The location couldn't be better, well within 20 minutes walking distance to the main sights and attractions of downtown and the water front, or a quick $6.00 cab ride. If you have a car they have free parking as well. I was pleasantly surprised by the room, I had... More
