Not the Ritz, but nice if you can get a good rate. We got a double for $109. Room was a little worn down but clean and comfortable. We stayed in Room 16. Door knob to the room was loose. Could be easily fixed with a screwdriver. Old kind of TV and kind of a hodge podge in regards to furniture and decorations. Felt like we were staying at Grandma's cluttered house. Big Head Drew Brees adorned the mainhallway along with old misc. pictures and mirrors. Kind of different. Also, you actually use real keys to get in hotel and room. Wow!
Shower had a little drainage problem (ended up with water around my ankles). Could be easily fixed. Cute little courtyard. You have to park in the street since they have no on site parking. But felt safe and nothing happened to car. You also have to load in through front door which has stairs to climb. Could be an issue if you have big bags, although they helped carry them in. Staff was extemely friendly! Very nice and accommodating. Check in was a breeze.
I wouldn't stay for more than a night or two, but if you are on a tight budget and just need a place to sleep, this is the place for you.
