"Cost of stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It is unfortunate, that when I travel for business, I do not have anything to do with holidays yet, I have to pay those high rates. My last stay at this location was $89, this stay was $206 for the same room for one night, for one person! Robert.

"Girls annual shopping extravaganza."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our second time here. Love the retro decor! Room was spacious and neat and clean. Fridge and coffee maker. Lovely staff. I think the price would have indicated a less than comfortable room as it was quite inexpensive. Can't beat the location for our needs.Parking a bit tight but certainly doable. I slept like I died.
