Recently renovated, new linens, and a fantastic owner. There was two changes to my reservation, and the owner Jim was super friendly and more than accommodating. It's super close to the Amtrak station in case you need to catch a train, and the room was extremely clean. Has great wifi and cable package too. 10/10 will be back.

I talked with the owner at 8:20 and made the reservation, he never mentioned he closed the office down at 10!!! I called again at 10:12... More

They did and when I asked how much I was told $39.00. I arrived to a very old, very outdated... More
