Very Good8.0
Lotsa character and characters.
The hotel has a lot of character and attracts characters. The staff is top notch. Super friendly and super helpful. If you don't like noise whether it's from the constant stream of planes flying into the airport and tense traffic jostling to get on the on ramp to I-5 across the street or some of the guests stumbling in still wound up from a night on the town then this place isn't for you. But if you are willing to put up with that then you will find this charming little place quite the gem. It's very close to the heart of downtown and a really good bargain.

Hotel was great. Location great. Parking was a problem. There is also no easy place to stop off temporarily for checkin unless you want to park on a red line.
