We stayed here for two nights. We were looking for a centrally-located hotel but didn't want to pay the prices most downtown properties charge. This place fits the bill.
The corridors are a bit worn and the hotel definately shows its age. The room was OK - the bed comfortable and the room was quiet. The place was clean but we did have to request housekeeping after the first night as it appears they forgot to do up the room. There was a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room.
Parking adds $12 per day to the bill but it was still under $100 per night.
The hot breakfast included in the price was OK- nothing special but it did fill us up both mornings.
The hotel is about two blocks from the streetcar line and so it was really easy to get around. It wasn't all that far from "downtown" and we did walk it a couple of times.
I'm not sure we would stay here again, but for what we wanted on this trip it worked out fine.
