We picked this hotel because we thought it would have character being older and convenience of being in the square. The room was sad and dirty with the creakiest bed I’ve ever slept on. We could here other guests through the paper thin walls and the noise from the road was just awful. We had to have the window open because it was so stuffy but that just made the trucks, cars and homeless outside even louder. We were booked for two nights but left after one. We couldn’t bare to stay. When we checked out early we were asked about our stay and we said about the noise the receptionist said ‘ oh yes, it’s noisy. You should have asked for an interior room’. For over $100 a night I would definitely expect better.

Vintage and historic building. But parking depends on luck and there are many homeless people in the park facing the hotel.
