              7.4

              This was close to the family we were visiting. The price was fair.

              Parking garage charge which is different for us in a small town.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              Very clean, nice people, staff always ready to help.

              Needs a little updating. Bathrooms small, not meant for two people to get ready at same time. Could not get into resturant busy and small.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              The staff is great and the location was great for us

              The hotel is extremely shabby. Tub and sink need resurfacing (enamel is all chipped). No staff available in early morning for checkout before 7:00 A.M. heat is hard to control. Rooms are too hot. I would not stay again unless refurbished. DAVID BALINSKY

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Only stayed one night but found to be warm and slept well

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Simple

              Even if the owner wants to keep it as it was 80 years ago, he shoud ask a decorator to choose the color of the paintings and redo the closets.
