1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our room was on the second floor but no elevator. I placed my carry-on on the desk and it almost fell over it was so rickety. I called for directions and was told to use my GPS. The parking was in back so we had to climb two sets of stairs with heavy luggage. I could go on, but you get the general idea. Very bad experience. I cancelled my August 5 reservation, that's how bad it was. The only bright spot was the waitress, Stella, at Lil Jimmy's pub. She was great.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The building is old and can get loud. My room was across from the stairs so I would get more hotel noise. Room was really small. Not worth the money.
