Decide whether you want to be a bar or a hotel
Posted Oct 24, 2016
Positives - Very friendly and helpful staff; good, clean room and lobby; location close to downtown; bikes available for use by hotel guests. Negatives - We had a room right above the bar on Friday and Saturday nights. Loud noise level until after midnight. Even though we were given earplugs, had a hard time sleeping. Either the rooms around the bar should not be utilized on popular nights or the bar area should be moved to another area. We did try the bar after reading several positive reviews on it - Drinks were VERY different. Hard to find something that we liked and there were 4 of us. Before serving a drink, if there is something unique about it, i.e., beer with carbonation resembling champagne, the server should tell you that at the time of ordering. Would not go back to the bar.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you felt we have a tidy hotel and you enjoyed the bikes. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the bar, especially since we are in this together—the bar and the hotel. We used to have music in the courtyard and we’ve had our share of events that gathered a lively crowd. Now we email our guests that if they prefer to be away from the action, they should request a quiet room away from the bar.
I admire what our bar and restaurant staff has created. They have challenged me personally-- a gal who likes a good burger and a beer -- to try something new. They are always changing the menu to include local ingredients and original selections. So I recommend following their lead, as you might find a new favorite. Incidentally, they usually take back any item you aren’t satisfied with. The staff at the Modern Bar strives for excellence. I’m sorry we didn’t hit it off with you this time, but come back and go on another adventure with us.
