I think it a great place n ckean and the staff is great!

Had a classic feel to it. Kinda like a old 1920s type feel, with and updated touch.

Unless you pay for a single room, you'll be sharing with 3 other people. Depending on who you get, your experience will vary. But the beds are soft, the shower has high-flow heads, downstairs is a bar that's bumping, and the location can't be beat.

Having 4 guests in a very small room was Not acceptable! Furthermore, parking spaces were too expensive!

I like the staff, the boy at the front desk was very nice, he printed my basketball tickets free

Excellent place, very good location near everything

Perfect location. Great amenities. Super friendly staff. Comfortable room. Housekeeping could improve a bit, but nothing major. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend!

The stay was enjoyable. The staff was extremely friendly and the room/bathroom was very clean. The room was small

It is a dump, dirty, no maids to do the bed it was the worst experience ever

Light in bunk bed was broken but the staff was wonderful and super helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location!

Great vibes in both the room and in the downstairs coffee shop and bar. I'll definitely be back to the cocktail bar which had great drinks and solid bar food options.

Loved the funky bohemian decor. Our 5 yr old son was enthralled with the bunk beds

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We appreciate you sharing your experience with us. Furthermore, there is always an agent at the front desk to assist our guest and we would have loved to accommodate you in a room upgrade if you would have like more space to yourself. We also could have recommended another source if you were looking for a more inexpensive price for parking. Hopefully on your next visit we can assist you with any concerns, we are always here to help.
