This was our mystery hotel for Hotwire. Downtown is walkable, but it's a 30 minute walk. If you are visiting more for the college than downtown, this would be a suitable hotel as the college is only a 10 minute walk.
Rooms were ok. Loud AC unit (only annoying when it cuts on/off) which we kept running all night.
Breakfast is appreciated but the bacon felt/tasted like microwave bacon and there was no sausage. There was a pankake maker which was nice though.
Again, nothing terrible, but at the same time, nothing to stand out. If you want to be downtown, this isn't the hotel for you.
