I have stayed twice at this very cozy boutique style hotel. Very professional and pleasant staff. Very comfortable king size bed, room clean, large shower, large TV, hotel is also in great location close to shopping and many good restaurants. I will be checking in again.

They have tidied this hotel up a lot but it's an old hotel. It has creaky wooden floors so you can hear the people in the rooms upstairs walking around and using their toilet.

Beautiful hotel close to EVERYTHING!! In town for a baseball game and loved the atmosphere and retro decor! Staff was incredibly helpful. Only drawback to this hotel is that there is no elevator so if you have mobility issues, make sure you ask for a first floor room!

Special little hotel with all the right stuff. Can't wait to go back. Had no idea it would be next door to the #1 Steakhouse. Convenient, clean, comfortable and great service. Best room for the money anywhere.
