Simple, clean, convenient location
If you're looking for fancy it's not for you, but if you need a clean place to stay near the airport it's great. All the staff we met were really nice. I was traveling with my daughter and just needed a place to sleep and refresh close to the airport and amtrak while we went sightseeing and it worked great, just a short uber ride from the public transport. I felt safe and the shower pressure was great with plenty hot water.
The room was pretty small and the building is old but I expected that from the reviews; I think it's a great value for the price paid compared to other hotels in the area.
If you are looking at this seriously, you have made a serious mistake
Front desk manager was kind, thoughtful and fair.
The physical condition is not suitable for anyone looking for a room using an online hotel search site. We booked it because of a very (very) misleading review score of 4.5/5 on a major hotels website... admittedly by only a few reviewers. Fortunately, we did not pay in advance through the website, which we will not be using again. The front desk manager (and possible owner), was fair, thoughtful and willing to cancel our reservation as soon as we looked at the room. I don't want to be disrespectful in any way, so I would just say that it is inappropriate for singles, couples or families that have any other options. At an advertised cost of $140 per night and a score of 4.5, it was hard not to be shocked upon arrival.
