    This small inner city hotel is truly a gem. Exceptional friendly staff and ninja like cleaning staff. There are numerous small restaurants within walking distance and parking is 1/2 block away. Large quiet rooms and large bathroom.

    Loved our room and the super friendly staff. Good food really close. Parking close and fairly priced. Bring earplugs because they party down the block on Saturday night and you may want to drown them out. I would stay here again.More
