Good location - close to bus line and some restaurants within walking distance. Customer service just okay and minimal room amenities. While I think the area rug by the bed is a great idea over full carpeting - it needs to be washed more often. Comfy bed but loud AC if you need to use it. Since there is no... More

Our first impression when we entered our room at Aqua Mar was, "This is really small!" However, we quickly realized that it had everything we needed and that it was a very efficient use of space. The queen bed was quite comfortable, and the pillows were great. The room had a refrigerator, a microwave, and great air conditioning. The bathroom... More

When you just need a place to sleep and a morning shower, this is the place; clean, fresh, and centrally located. The room was small, but I didn't need a hotel room to hang out in since I was visiting family. Parking was convenient and there are three coffee shops directly across the streets!

This hotel is okay, nothing special. When I arrived, they were having computer issues so I was unable to get a room key until the following day. This was not an ideal situation and I felt like it may have been handled differently. Other than that the hotel is fine if you won't be spending much time there. Our room... More

The hotel was beautiful and the staff very friendly. My only complaints were noise from the above room and not getting enough towels. The hotel staff upgraded my room for free and put my luggage into the room while we were out. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay again!

We were so pleasantly surprised with this motel. It was simple, cute, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and the friendliest staff. You MUST try Better Buzz coffee that is right next door, it was the BEST coffee we have ever had. Great central location, free parking, free wifi. We will stay here again and would recommend it to anyone travelling... More
