This hotel has a good location if you want to walk around the area and the price when I booked was okay. Here are the pros and cons:
Breakfast was good for the price and they were able to make a few adjustments for me which was appreciated.
Wifi was strong and easy to connect to - not free though.
Location was good for walking around the area
The staff was obviously just there to collect a pay check and really didn't seem that happy about it
They charge you a fee when you check in that you have to accept that "includes" access to a paper, wifi, and some other basic things. It was $21 and stating the hotel has free wifi but then making you pay a fee to cover it is not transparent.
The room was in pretty poor shape, paint was chipped in the door frames and tiles/sink were cracked in the bathroom. I know the hotel is old, but it felt neglected.
