This is one of the nicest places around here, and the prices are reasonable. My new favorite place to stay when I come to visit family! Rooms are clean, and the staff is very friendly and courteous. There is a restaurant on the first floor, and a few more within walking distance from the hotel.

Glad to have chosen something other than one of the hotel/motel chains - you are downtown, good restaurant/bar (take advantage of 10% off food as hotel guest), parking lot, and very friendly staff (Ms. Brennan was extremely helpful when we checked in). While the building may not be as historic as the dining room suggests - with a traditional old-school... More

We have stayed here before and will stop again. We chose a parking lot side room this time to avoid the noise of street traffic. Little did we know that room 417 has a constant noise related to some type of vent fan that is in the bathroom. Closing the door seemed to help. We love the University grille. However,... More

Stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend for the weekend. The room was great and the king size bed was so comfortable. The only strange thing was the corner room we had didn't have darker curtains that closed but in the morning the sunlight wasn't as bright as we thought. The staff was great and polite. We got in...

Very loud guests and rooms that don't offer a buffer from the hall noises and the road noises. Nicely appointed rooms and a great lobby area. Terrible breakfast if you want more than coffee and a cup of yogurt (eggs /sausage look plastic )
