Was old dirty and run down. Paint was peeing off the dirty walls. Bedding looked old and dirty. Hall smelled awful and the only elevator got stuck with someone in it. Stay away from this place.

"It was a place to stay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Pros: It was clean and staff was very inviting. Cons: this is an old hotel that needs better maintenance. Half the lights did not work, the hallway smelled of mildew and it felt as if it was just run down. the look and feel of it is from the 1950's classic but its run down like it stayed in the 1950's with patch work retro fits to some what modern equipment. I gave it a three because of the staff, otherwise it would be a 2.

"Such a disappointment."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Such a disappointment. Front desk extremely unhelpful and Unknowledgeable of what was going on in the area. I've stayed in a lot of boutique hotels and lloved the individualization of each.. There was no recognizable hotel registration zone. The bed was very uncomfortable and the staff had a no care attitude. I would definitely never Stay there again.

"Poor Stay"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
No safety grips in shower dangerous. No: ice cubes, ice bucket, pencil, pen, pad or phone directory. Paid for parking is inconvenient. "Queen size" bed seemed small for two people. Not enough table space for two people to lay their luggage on. Reception desk personnel were all helpful. Too few eating places especially for breakfast nearby.

"Not what I expected."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. Bath was too small, hot water took 15 minutes to get warm. Smell and felt as if mold was in the room. A damp musty smell. The ceilings looked as if there was water damaged. The windows could not see out of them. The elevator took over 15 minutes to get to the 5th floor. The walls are paper thin I could hear all conversations and everything going on inside the hotel and outside the hotel. The hotel has the feel of a boarding house Needs a total update! The baths did not have enough room to move around. I'm only 5'2" I can not imagine anyone taller being able to even enter the bath.
