Great Location for Low Price

Had to change rooms once because the outside door wouldn't lock when leaving the room and I didn't want to leave my stuff in there. But once I did that, all was fine. Appreciated the refrigerator and microwave but no conditioner for my hair. Did charge $5 for parking despite the ad that said free parking but that was OK. Didn't expect much for the price - the location was the main draw - and it worked out well. Hard to get a safe, cheap hotel/motel downtown and all the things I wanted to do were within a few miles of this place.

Just OK

This is one of the cheapest downtown hotels so it does have that going for it. Free parking, and free WiFi are nice perks for the downtown area. Close to 4th St Live and many downtown attractions. The hotel may have been re-done in the last couple of years, but it's still showing its age. My room on this stay was clean, some stays it has been and some not so much. Housekeeping knocked on my door every morning despite the Do Not Disturb sign I put in the key slot. Don't expect to watch tv either, they've had the same sign at the front desk for a long time now claiming a temporary cable problem, so you'll only get 8-10 channels and a couple of times the tv in my room was only in black & white.
