The pluses - Cute/kitschy decor, free (well, included) parking, great location on S. Congress, friendly and helpful staff and it's definitely clean. The minuses - this is an OLD property and while it's been spiffed up and looks cute it lacks the amenities of even a Red Roof or Microtel. Only 1 nightstand, no place to put luggage, only 3 electrical outlets (bring a power strip with you) - 1 was under the "desk", one below the tv with nothing to set something plugged in on and one behind the nightstand. Oh - the "desk" was a counter along one wall that had one drawer to put clothes in, a refrigerator next to the drawer and a very short stool (child size) so the end portion could be used as a desk. No closet - one pipe to hang clothes on above the drawer end of the counter . A tiny shelf in the bathroom - really not big enough to put much of anything on. A box of kleenex would have filled the space. Just know going in that you're paying for location and the "cute" factor. As far as even normal amenities in the room, you're "roughing it".

Great location. Room was adequate and bed comfortable. Bathroom was small on our first stay however when we returned the next room had a different layout and we then had adequate counter space for toiletries etc. Wish the weather was warmer so we could use the pool as that was awesome. Overall it was more about location for our stay and it was primo for our needs.
