Great location. Get what you pay for.
Overall, good stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. I got what I paid for -- a small, single room, with no frills. Common bathrooms are very clean. They do a great job communicating that they are above a bar, so plan accordingly. (They also provide ear plugs.) The location is ideal, and there are plenty of parking opportunities if you need.
