I recently stayed at the Hopkins Inn. I had stayed here about 4 years ago, and didn't remember it being so bad, but would not recommend it to anyone at this point.
I decided to stay here because it was the cheaper of the 2 hotels I was looking at. I was saving $10, but that all went out the window when I had to pay $18 for parking. That was not mentioned when I booked my room. The young girl checking me in was not the most gracious. I needed to pay for the parking, but she did not want to process my payment at that time because "the computer was too slow."
My room was small, but certainly fine for one night. The closet was so narrow I could not shut the door without my clothes being crushed. They had to be put in at an angle to begin with . On the chair next to the bed was someone's (the previous guest?) pantyhose, hanging up to dry. The TV was mostly static. It did not even have NBC. The bed was terrible. The mattress is so old, that I just fell into the middle of the bed & had to "climb" out of the divot. As other travelers have mentioned, the heating system is extraordinarily loud!! I slept very poorly that night.
In the morning, I discovered that the room did not have a hair dryer. I tried to call the front desk, however, the phone in my room did not work. I went down to the front desk, but the lights were all out, and no one was around. I continued on into the basement, where I did find the young man working. He was very pleasant & did get me a hair dryer.
In terms of the free breakfast, my only complaint was that there was not any plain black tea and that the breakfast didn't start until 7 am, which is late if you are trying to make it out early.
Ultimately, I questioned the cleanliness of my room, combined with the terrible night's sleep, does not make it worth it.
