Quirky hotel-great value

If you are looking for a convenient location, for a great price, this is a wonderful option. No elevator, creaky steps, uneven floors in the hallways are the elements of character that can be found. The rooms are comfortable with some nice perks. Definitely an alternative to the sameness of chain hotels.

Old, Quirky, & Affordable

This hotel shows its age in a good way. The small rooms are each unique and odd. Do not expect a large seating area, ADA restrooms, or even a clock. There's a phone, tv wifi, and that is about it. That being said, it is affordable and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. There was even a hotel cat wandering the hallways getting the guests. Free parking is nice, but sometimes it fills. Good restaurants or shops are in walking distance.

business trip

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the last month for business. I really like the location and the staff. The hotel is quaint and charming and meets my needs as a business traveler. It is convenient to many restaurants and bars. My only complaint and it hasn't been this way in past visits was that the plumbing in the shower was very loose and the shower didn't drain. I believe i had a room that was recently being renovated and it wasn't completed properly. But overall a nice place to stay at a very reasonable price.
