4/10 Fair

The people were very nice with good communication but the room was very hot with no way to cool it off, no cool air and the shower curtain was rank smelling. No breakfast included, very icy outside with no close parking.

4/10 Fair

It was in a nice location. Close to a lot of restaurants. The themes were a nice idea but there was nothing comfortable about this place. The amenities were the roll of toilet paper and a plastic cup.

Door didn't latch well without locking and the area rug was covered in hair. Otherwise was good, breakfast in particular was excellent.

2/10 Poor

My husband and I had a terrible stay here. We were on the top floor of the hotel and all night, about every ten minutes, an extremely loud fan/grinding noise went off (I think something on the roof?). We didn't sleep at all. Around 1am we tried calling two different phone lines, one on the hotel website, one that was posted down by the lobby, to see if we could switch rooms and no one ever called us back. The bed was really uncomfortable and the bottom mattress was dirty. Hardly any water came out of the sink either. I know it's an old hotel, I typically enjoy staying in them, but there's a difference between "old charm" and things just not working or being gross.

I loved the staff! They were extremely helpful! My only complaint is there wasn't ice and there wasn't a small refrigerator in the room (I'm a diabetic and I needed a way to keep my meds cold).
