The location, on South Congress, is great as it is on the main street of a neighborhood with food trucks, small restaurants, boutiques and vintage clothing stores that surround this old renovated motor court motel. The rooms are on the small side. (We were shown three mini suites before we agreed that the 3rd one might actually be classified as such and said okay) We had room #24 - the original bedroom had been converted into sitting area, and what would have been the carport had been made into a bedroom - with a mini courtyard. It was minimal & "cute". The convenience bar and sundries were as hip as the room, and the music & movie list were brilliant. There was a small room service menu, coffee was available in the court yard early morning and beer and wine there after. Also there was a nice coffee shop - Jo's - that was adjacent. The biggest downer for us was the exessive cigarette smoking. We couldn't sit outside without being surrounded by it, and like I said it was definitely pricey... but well worth the experience.
