Affordable, cheap, good breakfast buffet, staff are so nice. The catch is, it's not a good area to walk around, can see some homeless people around the area. If you have a car and no plans to walk around the area - still ok. And the thing is, when we entered the room it smells like something stale - you'll...

Great location for public transportation and walking to Old Town. Service great and friendly. We sat with friends in the lobby with the fireplace burning, they loaned us beautiful glasses to drink our wine. Everything was clean and breakfast was good.

This delightful, comfortable, CLEAN and gracious Inn was a pleasure to visit. I literally felt at home with the attention given. I had packages mailed to the Inn to pick up. They were safely held for me. Phone calls regarding local tours were made for me. Suggestions as to great delivery food were spot on. DVD's were free to watch....

We've stayed here twice in the last few weeks and have been pleasantly surprised. In what appears to be an industrial or transitional area is this nice, older, but immaculate, inexpensive hotel. The rooms are reasonably sized with everything one needs. Noise isn't an issue even though the proximity to a busy street would make you think so. The breakfast...

Came and stayed for two nights and they were great! Room was well cleaned and maintained. I was having some issues with the WiFi on the first day I arrived, but the people at the front desk were awesome and managed to reset the router. After that, I no longer had any problems, and the WiFi is fast too! All...

We stayed here over Thanks Giving. We will be coming back. Breakfast just hit the spot. The staff was wonderful and very friendly and helpful. Free movie rentals to go with the DVR's in the rooms. We stayed in the large suites. Very nice and clean. So happy we found this place.

Although located on a busy street, the rooms are very quite. The staff is very friendly and the room was spotless. The prices are reasonable.

Great place. I needed batteries and they gave me some. Also, they have free movie rentals. I stayed only one night so I did not get to try the heated outdoor pool. I woke up late so I didn't try their free continental breakfast either.
