I booked a reservation here recently based on photos of the rooms and other people's reviews. When I arrived at the hotel I was a bit worried. To say that the exterior is a bit dated would be very diplomatic. I think they might be going for some sort of retro charm - but who…

We had a great stay at the Edgewater staying in a Junior King Suite. The room was comfortable and spacious. Great location and friendly staff. The parking there is limited but we were able to use the parking at the Best Western a few blocks away which worked out great.

"Avoid rooms facing the main street if you can, if you like open windows, the street side faces a small park which can be noisy at night."
