Loud neighborhood
I loved the stay. Especially for what I paid for, however we were in a room directly facing the sidewalk and there was a lot of commotion on the streets. I could also easily hear my upstairs neighbor opening and closing their door and even when they were showering. Other than that I was extremely pleased with my stay

I liked that they accommodated us on the 1st floor because we had our bikes to bring in and out. I was a little disappointed that we had to pay to park. $19 a night.

This place is nothing special but the customer service and location is awesome. You are footsteps away from everything that SB has to offer. Highly recommend if you aren’t to picky with the actual hotel room. At the end of the day you should only be in your room to sleep, right? Explore!
