Definitely wasn't what the pictures depicted. Wasn't exactly the cleanest. The shower handle barely worked and there is a hole in the floor by the shower. Id say this place is only ok. It was hard to find the place when we initially looked for it earlier in the week by car. Check in was 4 and with so many people we had to get bikes out to actually find it. No parking offered. That was the worst. Costed $60 extra to park. And had to carry our luggage to the room through the troves of people on the street from more than a block away. Would not recommend staying here unless your not in a vehicle and only have a backpack of stuff to carry. Did have a neat deck over the restaurants so you could sit outside and listen to the live bands playing.

Location, location, location made up for the problems experienced with room. TV had one channel and no working remote, night stand lamps had no on/off switch. No instructions in room for getting ice. No office staff to talk with but, by texting back and forth, I was able to get a hairdryer delivered. Room was freshly updated and looked very quaint for it's age.
