This place is great for what it is. We stayed here after 2 days of camping, and we were quite happy. We wanted something not too expensive, close to everything, and to support a local business. It satisfied all those quite well. The room was nothing special, but was big enough, clean, comfortable bed (and a nice view from the 3rd floor). Jerry was very nice and professional and even made some good recommendations for where to catch some local, live music. It's a super close walk to everything and they have free parking. They are not a B&B, so no breakfast, but I would highly, highly recommend you go to Two Cats a few blocks away for a memorable breakfast. Oh, they do give you a $10 certificate to Geddy's but we didn't go.
