There were no full curtains that closed in my room #256. The building across the street has 2 bright outdoor lights that shine right into the room all night long. There should be full curtains to block these lights from shining right in your face as you try and sleep as well as for privacy. The mesh curtains that are there leave you feeling pretty exposed. I prefer room with a small fridge.

Fun, slightly eclectic hotel in a nice location. Limited dining on site but lots downtown. Like so many hotels, they charge for parking. Not sure why that always annoys me a bit - especially in small towns. Small gym and bikes available- nice touch.
