Convenient to downtown
My goal in choosing a hotel for this trip was to find one close to downtown at a reasonable price, and this hotel met both of those criteria. No serious complaints, the outside of the hotel and the common areas are nice, and the rooms themselves are okay, not awesome but at least they're clean. I found the shower difficult to operate, I've never seen a mechanism like the one in our bathroom to get the water to come out of the shower head. The only minor issue I had was the condition of the interior hallways; they were so dingy I felt like I was in some sort of shabby apartment building. To be fair, this did not seem to be a matter of cleanliness, it might have been just the particular type of carpet or paint that was there that gave that effect, but nevertheless for me it took away from what was otherwise a pleasant hotel experience. Still, having said all of that, the good outweighed the bad. A very big plus during our stay was being so close to Paschal's restaurant, where we ate a couple of times.
