Cheap, what do you expect?

Free parking, quick check-in, and a clean bed. Not located in an area that I would walk around by myself at night. Just a place to spend one night that is affordable.

You Get What You Pay For

Do not stay at this hotel if you have alot of luggage or heavy luggage because there is NO elevator. The person at the front did not bother to help me or these poor people who had what appeared to be very heavy luggage. There was no iron in the room although this is suppose to be a three star hotel. The housekeeping staff was stingy with shampoo, etc, but I had plenty of towels. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to people on a budget.

decent

Historic hotel yes, but I was kind of dissapointed as this could be a really great hotel. For the price the place is good. The beds and linens were shabby in my opnion, if they invested a little more in them this place would get a higher rating from me. The fake flowers in the back entry way look tacky get rid of them. Otherwise the place was great!
