Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Room is clean, and each room is named after a historical British person. The pool is nice and clean. Breakfast is standard, but having the option of eating outside was nice. The biggest downside is the parking garage, and they have to charge 10 dollars for parking. Poor illumination, rugged walls, messy surplus stuffs and equipments in corners make the garage space feel like a creepy basement crime scene. The staircase is equally scary with red traces on the wall left by fluid mixed with the rust of pipes. I think the garage needs a major improvement.

Our stay at The Cheshire was the absolute worst experience ever! The hotel was entirely run down. The pool area was dirty and disgusting, with pool toys strewn all around. The patio on the side of hotel was littered with cigarette butts and all the tables were filthy. We, unfortunately, booked a 5-night stay and couldn't cancel. We asked the front desk every day to clean our room, which never happened. I told them I had trash to be emptied and a bunch of dirty towels. They informed me that I was supposed to put them outside of our room in the hallway. Never in my life have I done that at a hotel. This was the worst hotel experience ever and a waste of a lot of money. DO NOT stay here!!!
