9.5/10, Absolutely would recommend.
This was our second time staying here and would do so yet again, and probably will! Front desk service seems to be kind of weirdly hit and miss, but rooms are always clean and it's a great location. And of course free breakfast is always nice. The biscuits and eggs aren't anything to write home about, but there's also bacon and texas-shaped hot iron waffles! Overall, a nice little boutique hotel that I've never had any actual issues with. Everything is clean and in proper functioning condition. Location is perfect for the places we go (and in a non-sketchy area), and free breakfast.

The hotel is great. The only issue was that the water did not get hot or warm in the shower.

Getaway 1
I love this place! A different ambience. It is not luxury, but clean , colorful, and staff was nice. Only 1 thing I feel would make a difference is if real scrambled eggs were served at there nice little breakfast area and not those little egg patties ... I Definitely will be returning though

Hotel lobby and common areas are very dated. Rooms are large, comfortable but have loud a/c units. Internet is spotty at best.
