This is by far the worst hotel I have ever been in. Everywhere was sticky. The staff could not care less about the room issues that were lot of. Dirty towels and bed was beyond nasty. For about $10 more per night you can get a clean room few blocks closer to the city center.

Stayed July 2013, traveled solo

This inn was the cheapest we could find for a quick stay for a last minute stay but I will never be staying here again. I would rather pay double the price to stay in a decent hotel. The staff was nice but they charged me $350 as a deposit which I was not told about until I arrived there and attempted to check in. We paid it regardless since they lady at the front was nice and assured me that it would be returned. The hotel room itself was not horrid but the door did not close unless your forced it shut. The walls are incredibly thin and the front desk was not able to assist us in asking our neighbours to quiet down since it was around 4 AM and we were in need of sleep. We had contacted the front desk the next morning so they could tell our neighbours to be a bit more quiet after 1 AM but this continued and when we tried to contact the front desk again, no one answered. I ended up having to go there and talk to our neighbours myself. The doors were incredibly loud and kept waking us up. The house keeping staff were unbearable. We had a long night and all we could hear was one house keeper screaming across the hall to another and it was not work related. I don't have an issue with conversing during work but disturbing the rest of the customers is rude and should not be tolerated. This inn wasn't even worth the $75/night we paid. I have stayed in many different hotels over the years but this was probably one of the worst hotels I have stayed at. I won't ever be staying here ever again.
