Reviewed 13 August 2015

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated in a modern style. The bed is very comfortable and the size of the room and bathroom is good for a party of 4. We like the location of this hotel, on the quiet section of State street with walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Very pet friendly at this hotel. The room was comfortable and in a quiet location for the most part. It's in walking distance to all the activity on State Street. Across the street there is a market that you can buy most everything if you need to. The staff is very friendly maybe not so knowledgeable of the surrounding area....

Thank you for your kind review of our pet friendly hotel. I'm pleased you found the hotel clean and comfortable. Thanks for the kind words regarding the friendliness of the staff. I'm surprised they could not recommend a restaurant as all of the restaurants are still serving at 10:30. Note we are in the process of replacing the mini-fridges. We...

Although we only stayed for one night in July, we were really impressed with this quiet, well run hotel. It may not look up to much from the outside, but as soon as we walked through the main doors, we were struck with how well appointed it is, how clean everything was, and how well the relatively small space has...

I stayed here for a week back a couple months ago and was happy with my stay.

This hotel is clean but it is noisy. The trash gets picked up around 6am and if you are close to the street you will definitely be woke up. And check your rates. Our bill didn't match up to our reservation email. They fixed it eventually, but be prepared to prove it!
