I chose this place mostly because it was a Groupon deal. The Groupon ad listed the rooms at a great nightly rate. Of course, by the time I was done booking it came to $30.00 more plus tax per night than the originally quoted rate on the deal. I was a bit taken aback when we arrived to find a sign out front advertising a lower price that we paid through what I thought was a deal. Later that evening the sign changed to a price that was slightly higher than we paid so that made me feel a little better. We arrived at about 2:30 to find that the office was closed until 3:00. No big deal because check in time wasn't until 4. We went back at 3:30 or so and check in was quick and easy. The woman at the front desk was very nice. The rooms are very small. There is a very tiny shelf like desk on the opposite wall from the beds and two night stands. We had brought some cheese and crackers and wine to have in the room and it was a little awkward working off the tiny desk. There was no fridge in the room but there is an ice machine in the courtyard. The bathroom is very tiny with a small shower and a sink attached to the wall with no vanity. There was only one outlet in the bathroom. It was a single plug outlet that was oddly placed under the light which was above the mirror over the sink. I had to rest my curling iron on the toilet tank to style my hair. On the plus side, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable and the lighting was bright enough to see well. There is a fire pit in the back that looked like it would be nice to sit around in the evenings but it wasn't turned out during our stay. I wasn't disappointed in the room at all for the price but would probably pay a little more for more space and more amenities if I had it to do again.
