This was an excellent hotel that accomodated as with free disabled parking and helped me physically downstairs and guided my husband in parking in disabled. The location and cleanliness was awesome and outstanding staff. The heater was a little noisy when trying to sleep but everything else great.

1AM disturbance
It was a horrible experience, the parking was full! I specifically picked this hotel because they had onsite parking however for their paid guest it was full! They called my room at 1AM because other guest were complaining about “a noise” first investigate the noise than reach out! It’s an old building with old pipes, the bed was uncomfortable my room was not as clean as I would of liked!! I would not recommend for you to stay in this hotel!!

Clean, friendly hotel with great location!
The room was on fire he small size, but exceedingly clean with modern bathroom and eco-friendly toilet. I liked the light-fan that came on immediately upon entering and turned off automatically. Paper cups would make it more eco-friendly. That is my one and only negative comment. Location was great!

Fancied up motel 6
The hotel looks cute in pictures, but is old and very small. My room smelled strongly of smoke, and there was hardly room to open a suitcase. There is also a farmer's market that closes down streets making it impossible to get a vehicle closer than a few streets away (meaning walking through large crowds with all your luggage a few blocks to get into a car). There was also a fair amount of noise from the market (music, police whistles). The bed was comfortable, but I'd stay elsewhere.

A quiet place to rest in a lively area
Room was available before check-in time. Staffs at the front desk were friendly. The room was very spacious with a cute vibe. Our room had a balcony that faced the Little Italy main street and square and it was quite an interesting view. The street got louder with all the music at night, especially when it was before a long weekend. However, the room was quiet enough for us to sleep very fine. Would highly consider returning to the hotel for future visit at the area.
