Located just of State Street this place offers convenient, comfortable, clean accommodation for a short stay in SB. Breakfast offerings were just OK, nothing special but enough to start your day. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Nice room, not the classic Holiday Inn setup. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good. Location is not optimal, but many shops and restaurants within 10 minute drive. Can highly recommend this place

We used the hotel for an overnight stay. The room was clean and big enough for one night, any more than that and it would have seemed a bit claustrophobic. A bit off putting was the fact that the windows were painted out so that...More

No resort fee but parking is charged and limited, but once you park there’s no need to use the car everywhere is walkable. The charge was displayed on the website. I think it may have been around $14.
