Enjoyed my stay at this cute little hotel. Service was excellent and the area was perfect. Wish it had a blowdryer

Looks can be deceiving
Big disappointment! I picked this place because of the modern design, but did not realize how small the rooms are, without any space to sit and work on a laptop. It was loud - I could hear almost every word from the neighbors, I had to ask for something as basic as a hair dryer, and when I dripped something on the floor and wiped it off, the towel turned dark. Which explains the stickiness of the floor. I found some excrements behind the nightstand. Overall, the room looked nice but felt yucky. I’d say this was no more than Motel 6 level, but with less parking.

Great stay
I had a great time staying here and also the neighborhood was great with access to restaurants, coffee shops, a grocery store, few banks and the nearby fishing pier.

Dirtiest room I’ve ever been in.
I arrived at the hotel for a one night stay, was asked to sing a bunch of strange paperwork basically forfeiting my right to cancel or receive a refund. Got to my room to find a bed with white sheets covered in black stains and a nightstand covered in dried up snot and boogers. I decided to leave for a different hotel was refused a refund and not offered any other accommodation or assistance or clean sheets even. Honestly the room looked like someone made the bed with dirty sheets and other then that no cleaning for a week. The pictures of the hotel on where I booked from simply are not pictures of this hotel. They are blatantly pictures of a different hotels rooms. DO NOT STAY HERE. I went down the street to the best western and enjoyed a clean and cheap nights stay. This place is a sham stay away.

While the hotel is definitely a no frills kind of place, it was a nice place to stay. I liked that it had a 50s feel, but had been updated nicely. The staff was very nice. Jinette was kind enough to print our zoo tickets for us. The location was close to great resturaunts and two coffee shops. The parking lot was a little awkward, but I would stay there again.
