Great location. Very close to shops, restaurants. Definitely enjoyed my stay

Such a great place for the price! Great location right on State Street just blocks from the action and the beach. Free bike rentals, free parking, and a sweet upstairs outdoor communal sun deck just perfect for reading a book or having a beer. Friendly staff. I’ve stayed here twice this year visiting from San Francisco. I would recommend to my friends and family.

Great customer service/ clean room. Very impressed with room number 7

AwesomeEverybody was great and sweet and nice here parking was a little minimal but it worked out in the end. Free bikes yay great time

Michael at Check In Very Nice & Friendly. Bed Super Big & Comfy. Heater worked great. It was cold & rainy so no one was up on deck.

walls are paper-thin and management does nothing about the noise level that's just outside your door on their little party deck. Unless you live in a sorority or frat house, avoid this place. They may have put some pretty new things on the inside of the room but the man you go to if you have a problem actually argues with you and thinks it's okay if you have your TV on and still can hear people loudly from other rooms and out on the deck. Not cool service.

Friendly staff, no fuss check in and check out. Wifi is fine for emails and general work stuff, don't bother trying to stream any entertainment.

Great location, you are 5 min from downtown restaurants and other attractions. Not fancy hotel, actually it is a motel, but actually has everything you need. Great service. Forgot my iPad in the room and checked out. Got a call from front desk, and they returned my iPod. Thanks a lot! Again, great location, great people and everything you need. Not fancy, but if you get room #1 you will have fireplace.

The room decor was up to date and clean, very comfy! Loved the location!!! Will stay here again soon.
