“I was hesitant to stay here at first because it is a older...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

I was hesitant to stay here at first because it is a older hotel, and yes it is not fancy but I didn't expect it to be so was very happy with it. could not have ask for better mangment they will help you with anything you ask for the nicest management I have ever dealt with. and this is the best hotel to stay in if you are going to the downtown area, trolley is in the parking lot are you can walk it is not a very far walk. hotel is clean has a pool. and the bed was comfy. and it is not far from the gypsy hill park. great town and great hotel. will stay here again. did not try the free breakfast, just because we are not breakfast people, so I don't know how it was. the staff did tell us where it was and suggest we try it. stay here you will not be disappointed

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

About 4 blocks from the historic downtown and across the street from the trolley stop, this hotel is in a great location. Everything worked well in the room, and the room was clean. Wifi worked well throughout the facility. Outdoor pool was crystal clear. Free breakfast was mostly bread, cereal and fruit. Stayed for two days and found the owners and staff to be friendly and helpful. Not a luxury hotel, but everything you could want for a comfortable stay in a great in town location. Room was very quiet. Elevator was small, but never had to wait long for it for a third floor room. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Upper floors give a bit of city view.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This hotel stay was meant solely to get off the road for the evening after a long drive. For me it was a little too far from the highway. When I arrived there was plenty of parking, the lot and outside of building was very neat and clean. The lobby was clean and brightly lit and the desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. However once I entered the elevator things changed some. Although everything was clean, as soon as the elevator door opened I was attacked by some sort of bug. The amount of bugs increased unbelievably from the elevator to my room. These bugs were everywhere, flying around and on crawling on the ground. It was horrible. So bad that I was uber sensitive when I checked the room for cleanliness and my bags, hair and clothing for stragglers. The room itself was dated but extremely clean (thank god). I'm really not sure how to rate this hotel so I'm going middle of the road on it. The bugs were a real drag but the hotel itself and the staff were great.

We had a king sized bed that was super comfortable. The room was clean, the shower had good water pressure. Breakfast could have more variety, it was just cereal and bagels/muffins. Also in the exterior hallway there are a bunch of bugs, probably because of the light.
