I got this through Priceline's name your own price bidding on two stars for three nights at USD 42 plus fees, no refunds. Last year, I won a higher rated two and a half star hotel for less in a slightly better area. We only stayed the first night, my spouse booked a much nicer hotel at more than three... More

This is a family run place, about 20 minutes to downtown and a short walk from the trolley. My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Good service from staff. Breakfast is worth a miss even though it is free - there are other options a short walk away. All in all, this is good value and worth considering if you... More

There is nothing "fancy" about this place. It's nice enough, decent enough, for when you need a place to stay, and you are on a budget. No snack vending machine. The "continental" breakfast, is choice of toast, per-packaged danish, cold cereal.

Definitely, there are some things left to be desired about this place. The lighting is stark, the carpet is dirty, smudges on the walls, etc. The "continental breakfast" looked so unappetizing that I just skipped it, and I'm usually a sucker for free food. This is no Holiday Inn. But then you're not paying Holiday Inn prices either. In fact,... More

At first I was against the idea of staying at a downtown hotel, but boy am I glad I stayed at this hotel. It really exceeded my expectations, starting with the most friendliest staff to the comfortable and clean rooms. The location was perfect everything is within a walking distance, this is a very safe hotel. Since the hotel is... More

The place is a good value. Our sheets were dirty but they came and fixed the problem quickly. The staff can be overworked at night though. Our smoke detector kept beeping because the batteries needed to be changed and they were too busy to get to us. Overall it's a cheap place and reasonably close to downtown.

I have read the previous reviews and after staying in a few ABVIs decided to give but a try. We booked online and requested downstairs but were put on 2nd floor, the elevator is still out. Neither my husband or I are able to lug our luggage up stairs but they quickly changed it. The lobby at check in did... More

The owners (extended family) live behind the lobby, and the place reeks of curry. Industrial part of town, not a walking area. First room had no TV reception, no hot water (later I found it does, you must run the water for 20 minutes before it gets hot), and the WiFi flickered. When I checked in they were all friendly...
