First the good: The location and price are excellent. It’s within walking distance of the action on 4th Street. The woman at the front desk was very nice. It was quiet at night and we slept so well that we completely missed the continental breakfast.
The not-so-good: The property is run down, plain and simple. While the outside looks ok, the room interiors are in need of a lot of work. In addition to being worn and dated, some outlets dangle or are loose in the walls and some don’t work (I was so relieved when we woke up and the place hadn’t burned down!). There was a significant amount of mold on the bathroom ceiling, and parts of it looked like they could cave in at any moment. For the price we paid, I knew not to expect perfection, but based on the reviews, I expected a lot better.
