Nice hotel , microwave and fridge in room very helpful. Within walking distance to the Citadel and downtown. The free continental breakfast each morning was great also! However not great for those with mobility issues steps to get in main door and if unlucky enough for a room on 3rd or 4th floor as there is no elevator. It is... More

This Inn is located in the area with very little around it. The Inn itself is clean and the staff are very helpful. Ample parking. The biggest problem is there is no heat in the Inn. The continental breakfast is missing a protein selection. This Inn is good for an overnight stay. The best thing near the Inn is the... More

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

Then when I was laying down on the pillow I felt a pinch I... 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
