There is a saying on the internet-- Pictures or it never happened. When I posted my review, I didn't post pictures, because--why? But when it was implied that I was misrepresenting my stay... well, time to add the pictures. We stayed here in December of 2013. We saw very few other vehicles in the parking lot, and now we know...

I am currently staying at the Allister square inn and the room and location is great but the past two nights have been like a college party on both floors. Loud music, yelling, cussing and drinking all night til 4 am and no one has done anything about it. Even had people bang on our door and run away because... More

I will tell you there is plenty of space in the rooms. I was impressed with the kitchen. There was a full sized fridge, a stove, full sink, all the... More

Phone worked, blow dryer worked. The Bad - Was told all rooms were Non Smoking. Not true. The Handicapped room smelled like rank... More

Thank you for your comments as we continually strive to exceed guest expectations. It is true that we are a pet friendly accommodation but only a few units are designated for pets. Had the guest contacted management about these concerns we would have assisted the guest in relocating to another unit. Unfortunately the behavior of others we have no control... More

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend. We paid $80 a night for a room with two king beds. The room was fairly clean and served its purpose. The only time we spent there was to sleep. The beds were a little stif and the Internet did not work the entire time I was there (two nights). I don't... More

There is the adage "you get what you pay for" for a reason! We stayed here while my husband was in a fishing tournament. It's definitely older property, but the rooms and bedding was clean and the air conditioning workd so good we had to turn it down twice! This is a great place for people heading to Port A... More
