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.

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.
