Hotel is fine for what it is - small rooms, older beds and furnishings, but convenient location. Pros - location to hospital and downtown. Plenty of hot water and water pressure. Free onsite parking. Clean. Pleasant front desk service. Cons - tiny rooms. Uncomfortable double beds. One working TV channel. Wifi did not work. Musty smell to room. $15 charge to rent a microwave. This room was fine for what we needed, a 12 hr overnight stay to access the hospital across the stree(walking distance). Got a great deal $. Would not have paid more for this room. My husband stated he would def stay there for a cheap ski weekend with a buddy.

I was very impressed and intend to return someday. Friendly and outgoing staff, and helpful at all times. My room and the hotel as a whole were exceptionally clean. I loved my room and despite having two double beds, there was still ample room for a table & chairs, a couch, fridge and coffeemaker. The mattresses were quite hard but to my surprise, were very comfortable and I hadn't slept that well for years.
