Good Location

Good location close to public transportation. Easy walk to many places or just hop on the trolley. We planned on using public transportation so this location was great. Only disappointment was we stayed on the first floor, room 112, and the floor above squeaked. So, every time the people walked around in the room it was very noisy and annoying.

Average

It wasn't dirty at all, which was my main concern. Staff was nice, nothing special. Location is very close to the gas lamp district, which was nice. It was what I expected for the price i paid.

Could be better and/or cheaper

Staff were friendly and very helpful and always available. Location is good - easy walk to downtown and Convention Centre. Quiet. Breakfast good self serve - adequate though room a bit crowded at times. the room is spacious except for the bathroom which is small with NO counter space. Clean and well cared for. Overall my only complaint is that this hotel is overpriced for what it offers. At 30% less - I would heartily recommend it for the cost conscious traveler who still wants basic comfort and good service.

Basic hotel/motel, great locaiton

No frills upscaled motel located in DT SD. Decent value ($144), but book early, prices go up quick. Rooms are a little small, and sink was dirty upon check-in. Also, $10 per night parking not advertised in price. Overall, fair value. I would recommend to a friend looking for a cheaper price, but there might be better overall values even if you pay a little more.

Small, but friendly

The rooms are quite "cozy" (a wee bit tight & small, especially the bathrooms), however the staff is quite friendly and accomodating. We were surprised to find no fan in the tiny bathroom, as the opening of the equally tiny window was not terribly efficient in clearing out the dampness of the shower. The room was clean, if compact. The walls were the traditionally non-soundproof type. The complimentary breakfast was unexpected hearty & replete with enough choices to please most any tastes.The grounds and roof garden are pleasant respites of green in the midst of a cityscape- a succulent lovers haven!The small fridge was nice to have, and the small market across the street made for a handy(if overpriced) snack/wine/essentials run.Parking was $10/day, which compared to other locations is low, but really--there should be no charge to guests for parking in the Inn lot--perhaps it would seem friendlier to add a couple dollars to the room price, and not charge separate for prkng.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Many attractions & good dining are close by car,just keep all the one-way streets in mind when planning routes. Parking is as difficult as anywhere, so keep change for the meters in the public lots as they have not seemed to progress to the central pay station where you can use a credit or prepaid card.You could get caught unaware and miss some fun. There are lots of lots which will validate witha purchase as well, and meters don't always need to be fed in the evening, but there are no signs to let the uninitiated traveler know that.
