Hotel location was excellent; one minute walk to river trail and still close to downtown. Housekeeping and front desk staff were kind. Balcony was private and big in our room. King was nice, I would recommend river view so the sun doesn't shine on your room throughout the day. No A/C which made it hard to sleep. The screen door was broken and finicky. Our reservation said early check-in but still had to wait 2 hours for a room after a 6-hour drive. Requested a microwave and kettle, did not receive either. Kids running down the hall at 830 AM. The room was SO hot; they did not mention there was no A/C. This made it difficult to have an early night or a break throughout the day. Literally only 2 channels- bring HDMI and laptop if you intend to fall asleep to TV. The restaurant is not actually in the hotel, but just over at the next one. Probably wouldn't stay here again and despite my review I am not a picky person. We basically just needed a place to sleep and it was still a disappointment.

It was a cute hotel although a bit older. There were some noisy people staying there and that was a bit disturbing but you're going to get that anywhere you stay.
