Simple room, a little bit musty. No frills, no fuss. No real recommendations. Just keep up with the upkeep. Maybe offer a computer/printer for guest use? One kitchennette per floor? Consider an ozone machine to reduce the smells when you have vacancies.More

This place is very cute. Lots of history and charm. Comfortable beds. Rooms are small but this is all about location and being out on the town. Steps from all the action, great restaurant in house, and great friendly service.
