Great location. Easy walk to the riverwalk. The parking is limited and difficult to get in and out of the back lot. There is a daily fee for parking.
Our room on the 2nd Floor with the 'city view' was okay but extremely small. The problems I had were at night the flood lights leaked through the curtains therefore the room was not very dark. Also, the lotion was half used. This means it was either used by the previous guest or that they refill the bottles and forgot this one. Rest of the room was clean.
Breakfast was continental (more standard for a lower budget motel but not bad) Not very organized in the lobby. If you would like to eat at a table you must take the elevator to the 2nd floor. There were a few tables set up in the middle of the floor. Seeing that my room was on the 2nd floor I did not like having strangers eating their meal right outside my door.
Not my favorite place but I will say again that the location is great.
Most of the front desk employees were friendly and fully capable of suggesting local activities and dining. The trolley stops right on the corner.
