We stayed for one night. It was clean and comfortable. Great value. Only problem was the elevator. It doesn't always work, but we only had to take the stairs once. Bed was pretty comfortable and we had a nice view.

Pretty good location! Be sure to ask for a view of the water/ capitol otherwise staring at a park full of the houseless. Could use a little TLC but beds were comfortable and price was great for the area!
