 The room was very clean. The kitchen/living area (and washing machines) in the basement was a great amenity for a longer-term trip. Good discounts with area bars and restaurants.


 This is real old time. Ac works though open windows from hall to room. At first you think what!!!! but then it all feels quite comfortable. Beds are good. Craft beer shop next door. Breakfast a block away. Open mike night Wednesday at pizza place below.


Staff were all very nice. Hotel is right downtown, next door to several small good eateries. Lovely, old, interesting lobby. Large, clean self-serve, self-clean kitchen downstairs. Bed was comfortable (I needed an extra blanket).
