Good quiet location, courteous and knowledgeable staff, community computer, towel rentals, safe and luggage storage, laundry facility, kitchen facilities, piles of board games and even ice cream bars for sale; seems there's nothing these guys have forgotten. Added bonus for me was the schmoozy neighborhood cats. I'd definitely stay here again - you cannot beat the cost, cleanliness, location, and...

The taxi driver picking me up from the airport tried to talk me out of staying here, which was rather disconcerting as the reviews I'd read prior to booking were all good. I was impressed with the Northshore. It was clean, quiet, private, secure and very well run. Also it was very close to the bus stops, and close to...
