    Internet was very slow and did not afford connection unless outside room. Carla, the office person, was helpful. Bed comfortable. $83.25 on 12 SEP ... check in earlier rather than later to avoid 6pm rush. Could hear domestic in room next door.

    The room was freshly remodeled and clean, actually in better shape than most hotels. The staff was nice and accommodating and the price was well worth it. It's about 3/4 mile to the start of the Front Street action, within walking distance. My only complaint...More
