Couldn’t fix the TV. Rude woman at front desk. Difficult to control room temperature

Fair 4.0
Elevator not available, had to walk my luggage up to 5th floor because their service took too long. Bathroom was shared bathroom with other room with access via hallway. Neither was made clear to me upon booking.

Apartment for the week.
Perfect spot to stay for a week long work trip. Only thing being on the lower floor, there was a lot of street noise from construction.
Clinton, us3 night business trip
Poor 2.0
I was attending conference nearby and it was already after 11pm when I checked in but was denied a room because I was not 21. Worst was, staff lied to me: we will refund you tomorrow. I called next day and I was denied refund. If they didn’t lie, I could call a friend to help check me in. Anyway, this is the worst experience I have had.
Kevin, us1 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
Small, charming and a little noisy
This sweet little gem was VERY close to my daily meetings and the nightly cost couldn’t be beat. The inn is older with all the pros and cons that come with that. Charm and character but the rooms are teeny and the lovely wood floors can be noisy when other guests are moving about. I opted for a room with a private bathroom which surprisingly came with a jetted tub. I booked for price and location but the little details were a nice addition. I’d certainly stay here again.

Exceptional 10.0
I underrated it due to shared bathroom concerns but its mininal based on sharing with on other person. This hotel is a perfect example of how little work goes a long way.
steven, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
The location is great, but there is no elevator and my room was on the 4th floor, the wifi didn’t work most of the time, the mattress was old with an impression on one side, there was a very cold draft coming through the window and I was charged a “hospitality” fee of 12.95 a day for I am not sure what as it was not indicated when I booked through For NYC overall it was inexpensive so I guess I got what I paid for.

Hotel is clean, convenient location, great staff and the price is awesome.
criselle, us2 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Laundry bags all over the hallways, no elevators so you can get a 5th floor walk-up room and expectation to share a bathroom with another room. Worst place I have ever stayed
