Nice except for the blond lady at the front desk
This place has a lot of character and is right on Main Street near lots of shops and restaurants. Very affordable. Our King room was pretty big with a separate sitting area and kitchenette. There is a parking lot in the back and they give you a pass to put on your dash to park overnight. That downtown area can be crowded so parking might be difficult. When we checked in on 12/30/18, the front desk guy was very nice. However, when we checked out the next morning, the blond lady with an unfortunate hair cut and years of hard living deeply etched on her face was rude and dismissive. So minus 2 stars for her. Apparently the second floor is haunted. We read about it on line. Room 212 is the most haunted. We stayed in Room 211 and mentioned we heard sounds coming from 212 at 2:30 am and the horrid white front desk lady just goes, "No you didn't." She clearly hates her job. Why not apply at a slaughterhouse or the DMV where your personality would be an asset?

The room was small and there was no hand soap or soap in the shower. No wash clothes in the shower or in the the wash basin area. Only enough coffee for about 8oz each. Asked for a first floor room and was told that it shouldn't be a problem. Wound up on 4th floor.
