Hotel Saville is a small, budget hotel and nothing more. With room costs of over $100 a night, it is not particularly good value, either. When I entered the hotel, the young lady at the front desk had her headphones on, listening to music on her laptop. This didn't strike me as particularly professional, although she was friendly and helpful.
The location is both a plus and a minus. While close to nearby Chapel Street, it is quite noisy, being located right on Commercial Road. To be fair, my room was on the 4th floor, and facing Commercial Road. The noise seems to mostly enter through the small opening bathroom window. If I had to go here again, I would request a room facing the opposite direction (away from Commercial Road), and as high as possible, although I cannot guarantee how much better this would be. The rooms themselves are clean and appear to have been renovated, at least with a new coat of paint. The bathrooms are small (triangular shaped) but adequate. There is free parking, but it is outdoors and not secure. To be fair, this is also the case with most motels, although this one happens to be in a high vehicle theft area, so I feel it should offer at least some protection. There isn't really much to recommend about the Hotel Saville. There is better value to be had elsewhere.
