8/10 Very good

Great location, the hotel was nice but needed some updating. Wallpaper on one wall was buckling, room was a little musty (probably due to the fact it was ground floor next to the creek). The front door stuck so badly, I had to use my hip to open it. Overall though a great place to stay.

Overall we were happy with our stay but a few things need to be addressed. Most of the light bulbs in the room needed to be replaced. The ceiling fan had only 2 blades. The shower had no liner, just a cloth shower curtain. While minor, they were things that made it clear that while the room was clean more attention needs to be made on maintenance.

Lovely river
I absolutely loved staying there. I got to hear the river day-and-night. It was fun being able to sit on the balcony over there river. The bed was super comfortable. It was more like a like a cabin but I was very happy staying And want to do it again

We had a nice stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the balcony by the creek. Overall room was clean just a bit dusty. It was a nice size room and liked that it was not in the middle of downtown. Trolley stop right at the lobby but not that far to walk either.
