Great for a weekend stay! Definately had a bit of a party vibe, really central and close to alot of bars and restaurants. Clean facilities and friendly staff! Really enjoyed our stay. Only thing to note would be that the pool is tiny so dont expect to be swimming laps of it

First and foremost, it should be understood that this hotel should actually be considered a MOTEL. Aside from the pretty decent location, this hotel has next to nothing to offer - not even toilet paper. When requesting toilet paper from the front desk, they wouldn’t even bring it up to our room - instead, they asked that we come get it ourselves, which resulted in us having to find the supply closer to get everything we needed. The lady at the front desk was pretty rude from check-in to check-out, and the rooms were small, dark, and pretty ugly. We only stayed here as a last option, but you’d honestly have a better experience at a Motel 6 or Holiday Inn for the amount of money that they’re worth.

Good staff, nice location, a little quieter than the bedlam around gas lamp. The facilities and rooms were a little rough around the edges but ok. All I needed was a reasonably clean and safe space to sleep and this covered it
