Liked: Cleanliness
Homey, traditional styled hotel. Lots of brass and wood. Very clean. Room smelled great. Big bath. comfortable bed. several pub style restaurants and a mexican restaurant within 1 block. quiet central air conditioning. front of arms on one upholstered arm chair were lightly soiled where you grab it to pull yourself up to stand. Definitely a cut above the chain hotels. It’s a shame food service was shut down due to covid. They have a cozy pub style eating area and sitting room for drinks but all public areas were closed due to covid. Not their fault. Overall, a great find. I will definitely return.

The young lady who check me in was very pleasant and provided tips for parking. The staff was very friendly I felt very comfortable. Room was clean spacious and just welcoming. What was disappointing was that the bar/lounge was closed and no breakfast or snack machine. This is something to look into since the area doesn’t have many places open to eat or shop in walking distance.
