Reasonably cheap for the area. The room was very dated, but it was clean and serviced every day. Wifi was good, parking on site. The bar next door was dirty and the food was bad. But staff friendly. Overall ok but do not stay here if you are planning to stay in the room for any longer than just sleeping......

Unreal! This place is an overpriced dive, especially on the weekend! I would have had a better sleep in the car! The hotel is expensive, old, a dump, a located beside the bar. It's loud & the drunks come out at the end of the night. I will never stay here again. I gave it 1 star because of the...

No charge for dogs! Inn looks shabby on outside but inside the creek side room was clean, large and comfortable. Flat screen tv with cable, little coffee maker, newer bar fridge. Great balcony with view of not only the creek but entrance to downtown and mountains. Will stay again when in the area.

Don't stay here if you are looking for a good nights sleep. The loud music from the attached bar, the drunks yelling at each other combined with beds that desperately need replacing won't allow this. The plusses are location and it is clean.

The location of the hotel is great. Several shops are within walking distance. We stayed on the third floor and the view is amazing. It's better stay on the first floor if you are an elder carrying big suitcases.

40 guests and myself went to the drake and experienced the worst customer service from the manager of B Rich who was not only rude to us, but treated us very poorly. Because of this experience we will not be going back to the Drake and will not be paying cover to see a band we are not familiar with.

I REALLY want to give The Drake Inn a good review. After all, the room was very clean, the beds were comfortable, the service was friendly and the location is excellent. I'm finding it difficult, however, as I lay here at 2AM unable to sleep thanks to the thumping of bass from the attached nightclub. For this reason, I will...

I found that the staff showed no interest in asisting me in getting into my room, which apparently was ready, before 4pm (I had been tent camping for a week and really looked forward to a shower). I waited in the hotel restaurant for 3 hours until I was allowed to enter my room at 4pm. Before I was given...

Excellent accommodation, location and price. Clean rooms. Drake Pub available for meals at 10% discount. Free parking (first come first serve). They will be renovating rooms, I've been told, so prices may go up accordingly. But we were very happy with the room we had as it was (second floor)
