We spent three nights at Union Square Inn in January 2013. The room was comfortable and quite clean (some stains on the carpet and shabbiness to the linens). The room was small but well laid out. The bathroom door -- no fan, by the way -- is inches from the bed, so it's best that you are very comfortable with...
