Great boutique hotel

What a great little hotel! The best part about staying at non chain hotels is the perks you get. With this one, there was wine and cheese in the afternoon, continental breakfast and milk and cookies in the evening--all for free! Plus, free cable and TONS of DVDs you could borrow from the front desk. Very cute rooms. My only beefs with this place are the location: although not too bad of a walking distance from the beach, it's next to a park filled with homeless people. Getting to State Street on foot, you have to pass through a sketchy little neighborhood known for housing rehabbed drug addicts. Other beef is the peeling wallpaper throughout. Otherwise, I'd definitely recommend!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you have to walk to State Street via Castillo and Bath, don't do it at night or alone. Don't walk past the park at night; alone in the daytime seems to be okay.

IT'S A TOSS-UP, MAYBE KEEP LOOKING

TELEVISIONS ARE NOT THE ONLY THING I RATE A HOTEL ON, BUT ANCIENT TV'S WITH BLURRY IMAGE AND BAD SOUND ARE ANNOYING AND DEFINITELY SHOULD BE UP-DATED. IT IS JUST THAT IT IS AN OLD PLACE AND THEY HAVE TRIED TO UP-DATE THE PLACE, BUT NOT WITH MUCH SENSE OF QUALITY OR DESIGN.
