Although the staff at the "Hotel" was very helpful and nice, the "hotel" was lacking. First there is no parking available. You have to park on the street wherever you can find a spot...around the block behind the hotel was the best we could do... and hope your car is safe. Next after checking in we had to down a hall, out a door...like outside, down some steps to get to our room. I'm glad it wasn't raining. Old fashion door key, ok I can handle that except there seem to be a trick & wiggle to get it to work. The room appeared clean, very small with several areas of peeling paint... hope it wasn't lead paint. The people above us were either very loud or the floors are very thin. We could hear everything! There is a BBQ rest. next door and we could hear their music loudly as well. The bed was old-time springs that squeaked with every movement. Lets just say this was not a good experience for me... at all, even for the price & I would not suggest anyone but road warriors stay here. Just my opinion, others may like the "charm".
