"About 10 blocks from the center of town. The mid-century modern decor and vibe were fun. Nice room. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, and we were able to store our luggage after checkout to go sightseeing. The continental breakfast was good, but the selection was limited. There was an airport shuttle.2017-09-30"
"Perfect downtown location; easy walk to many attractions. The room was inviting and classy, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar served a fine continental breakfast and good food. The outdoor seating was inviting, but the weather wasn't. Stay at this hotel.2017-03-24"
"Wonderful staff and complimentary breakfast on weekdays. The free bikes were great to ride to the farmers' market. But the street noise and noise from other guests will keep us from staying at this hotel again. We didn't realize there were ear plugs in the bedside drawer until we were leaving. No fridge in the room, scant furnishings, and nowhere in the bathroom to store toiletries. If you want peace and quiet for sleeping, this is not the place for you.2016-04-16"
"Convenient to downtown. Nice hotel with a bit of a funky vibe. My 1st night was at the end of a music festival, and hotel guests were loud and rowdy all night. But the remaining 4 nights were nice and quiet. No coffee maker, microwave, or refrigerator in the room. The restaurant was good, but there was nothing ordinary on the menu. Not great for a longer stay.2015-04-05"
"This hotel was wonderful. The room and amenities were lovely. I was able to change rooms because of loud children and a dog in the next room. The TV in the 2nd room was constantly buffering, and we got the runaround every time we called the front desk about it. On the 3rd day, we were moved to yet another room, where the TV worked satisfactorily.2021-12-06"
"Great location. Don't expect luxury, but the motel was clean and quiet, and the room was spacious for 2 people. Breakfast was a 10.2018-06-19"
"The location was perfect for us, and the hotel amenities were good. The downside was that after running the AC quite a bit, it was obvious that our room had formerly been a smoking room. We had to open a window for fresh air.2016-07-05"

"Wonderful renovations. The hotel room was clean and pretty, but the late check-ins were noisy. The breakfast bar was kind of cheap; my muffin was hard, and then I realized a bite had already been taken out of it. On a positive note, a desk clerk came out without being asked and helped clear the snow off my car windows. It was much appreciated.2017-01-07"

"Close to the airport and the price was right, but I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. The room decor was dark. It smelled like urine around the toilet, and the plumbing fixtures seemed like they might break. It was hard to regulate the temperature of the water in the shower. Adequate breakfast. The airport shuttle did the job.2019-06-01"

"We were offered a room on the 2nd floor, but it was near the elevator so we opted for a 1st floor room. There was a yapping dog in the room next door, so we ended up moving to the original room. The rooms were small, and the heater was noisy. The hotel staff was cordial and helpful. Small breakfast area, but the food was sufficient. Adequate for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't return.2016-12-05"
"Beautiful room with firm but comfortable beds, plenty of pillows, and a heavenly comforter. The room had a fridge, microwave, and free wireless Internet. Friendly, helpful front desk clerks, and we were given bottled water and fresh cookies at check-in. Excellent breakfast with hot and cold selections. The eating area had plenty of seating. A 5-star hotel all the way.2016-02-06"

"The hotel clerk was nice, but not much else was. The fire alarm went off just 15 minutes after we arrived, and we had to wait outside for 15 minutes. When we returned to the room, we found a box cutter with blood on it under the bed. There was a group of people outside our window yelling and making a great deal of noise. Definitely stay somewhere else.2020-03-11"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
