The antique elevator was really neat The room itself had enough room and the matress was very comfortable. Whats more the air conditioning and the fan worked... More

I stayed there for 3 nights, and couldn't wait to leave this dump. FIRST, there are the trains, merely 75 feet from the room! Even had they insulated the windows (nothing in this hotel seems to have been upgraded,) I was treated to the repeated trains passing that took no reprieve during the night. At two or four AM, with... More

Greetings MsBizWiz2, I was very disheartened to learn of your disappointment with your stay. I do understand that a historic 100 year old building in the heart of a busy little township is not for everyone. Some seem to embrace the charm and atmosphere, while others look for a quieter more rural setting, and I fully respect that. As for... More

This traditional old hotel might seem a little frayed around the edges at first. It is definitely an older building and an old-fashioned sort of set up, but the rooms are comfortable, the air-conditioning more than adequate during the torrid two days of our stay, and the service very friendly and attentive. In a town as full of interesting stores,... More

You won't find in-room coffee, or lots of room in the bath, and you'll have to endure creaky floors and bed, but it felt like we went back in time to the days when hotels were charming and personal.

It doesn't get much worse than this. The positives that you will never need a wake up call and that's simply because there's enough ambient noise to make sure you will never fully sleep. Thank God for ear plugs. The walls are a chimera. The AC unit makes strange intermittent gurgles. The street noise makes you feel as though you... More

This is a very small hotel that is very long on charm and quaintness . . . it's old style with rooms on the small side, lots of wood details and wood shutters. Our bathroom was tiny but functional.

We stayed here when we dropped our son off at college. Park Plaza is PERFECT! The staff are the friendliest, nicest people in the world! It is the perfect location. We could walk to everything.
