Mudville Flats is small (three-room) hotel that presents a viable alternative for those who prefer not to stay in standard, box-like accommodations. Location is good -- in a regentrifying part of town, close to a number of good restaurants and bars. It is about a five minute walk to the ballpark, and a 15 minute walk to the convention center (this distance was good, since the local restaurants were not full of conventioneers). The owners are very pleasant, and are committed to the comfort of their guests. Our room was done in craftsman style, and was spacious (almost a suite). The king-size bed was extremely comfortable, we had a full kitchen (a bit of overkill, since we had no intentions of cooking), and there was free wireless and a flat screen TV. The room also had a great deck off the back, although the small courtyard it faced was very noisy when the neighbors were eating outside. On the negative side, the room was quite dark, the bathroom was below par, and the entire place smelled a little funky (leaving the windows open helped a lot). Overall, a good stay in an interesting part of town.
