Great location ! I paid for the room when I made the reservation. But when I arrived I was charged an extra $65 for "user fee and cleaning fee" I was never told about this or ever read about it anywhere.

We did like that the property was very private and tucked away from the street. However, the condition of the property was poor. Everything was falling apart inside. Light fixtures were hanging out of the wall, there were holes in the walls, there was no hot water, many things were broken or worn down. In addition, the staff provided no help and no hospitality at all. They were unreachable by phone, text or email. We were not even able to check in on our first night there because no one was available. We had to find another hotel to stay in at the last minute for that night, we eneded up spending an extra 200 dollars for that and never recieved a refund for that night's reservation.

Location was amazing and and was a very neat place to stay. But with some very inexpensive updates this place could be completely amazing across the board. The bed was so hard it felt like I was sleeping on the floor and that would be a very inexpensive update the owner could do and I have read about other guest complaining about the bed being to hard so my question to the property owner is why hasn’t that been solved? And the AC unit barely blows out cold air which is just a old worn out window unit. I have also read about other guest complain about the ac being to hot so again to the property owner why hasn’t this inexpensive issue been dealt with? Now I like cool showers but if your one for a really hot shower the water doesn’t go much past warm. And it would make it way better if it had a full size refrigerator with a freezer, I had some medical stuff I had to keep frozen and the little refrigerators freezer didn’t keep stuff frozen. With all of that said I still would recommend this place to stay just know that the bed is SUPER stiff and the ac doesn’t get very cool at all and you will be taking kinda warm showers.

The location was good except it was noisy as it was right next door to bars. Parking is expensive. The shower was very small and light in bathroom was falling off the wall. Air conditioning was weak as was fridge. Most of the electrical outlets only had one plug that worked. Kitchen was not well equipped. No WiFi. Was told they use whatever one was free, which is not secure and they were all password protected anyway. The check in was easy and communication was good. Place would be great if it was renovated inside. Common area was gross.
