          No, there are not. But you can easily find a spot on the next street, close to the back gate of the guesthouse.

          What is the parking situation? Am I guaranteed a spot? Is it covered? Off-street?

          You can't guarantee a parking space but there is free on street parking all around the hotel so you should be able to find a spot with 50 - 100 yards if your door.

          Hello! So I'm interested in staying here with my two best friends over Spring Break for about 5 days, but I'm a little concerned about what the minimum age is to rent a room. My two friends will be 19 and I will be 18 and I've read that many places require you to be at least 21. Does that apply to this hotel?
