6/10 Good

Location was decent. Not a bad walk into the city. The shower had not been cleaned very well. Covered in hair. Breakfast was very good- Belle was very kind, friendly, and thoughtful when it came to making breakfast for our small children.

8/10 Very Good

Great spot, bit uncomfortable
We made the reservation within 5 minutes of showing up so it is quite understandable that no one would be here. The owner had made plans for this ahead of time so I believe this happens often. Absolutely no issue as she was able to confirm our reservation and give codes thru the intercom at the door. As to the hotel, location is amazing for sightseeing and eateries, however a bit noisy with the windows opened as it is between busy streets. Once we closed the windows, WOW what a difference. Very little noise, I want these windows in my house. The beds were not much better than box springs on flat platforms, could be so much better
