Overall, this is a great place for the price. We loved the bathroom for the oversized counter. The Wi-Fi worked great and there were fresh baked cookies on arrival. The free breakfast was minimal, but free. The only complaint was the shower didn't work. They gave us a discount but.......

Great hotel for the price. Of all the hotels, best bathroom. Chocolate chip cookies in the lobby.

First time stay...not a bad location, close to a lot of things, the streets are kind of tricky however.

Very pleasant stay
I really liked the decor and setup of the room -- not your usual ho-hum hotel room. No drawers, just open shelves, which made it easier to be sure we weren't leaving anything. Delightful mirrors and lamps, and plenty of USB ports for charging devices. The bed was very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was very clean. It did need a comfortable chair, but I understand those have been ordered and are on the way. I was obviously not the first person to mention it. The breakfast was a bit sparse and not particularly diabetic-friendly. All in all, we had an enjoyable stay and would definitely come back.
