Liked: The location was great. It was in the quieter part of downtown, yet still very close to everything. The staff was super friendly and very helpful in terms of where to go and what to do in the area.

Disliked: Wasn't super clean, but not bad considering how many people were staying there each night.

Liked: The free wifi was useful and the location was central and walkable.

Disliked: I feel the price was too expensive and I had an odd encounter with one of the guests. Also on them night of July 1st one of the visitors was screemig about being called a meth head. Those encounters left me feeling uncomfortable.
