Hotel Ruby Marie is newly renovated, close to all things downtown, and a really nice place to stay. We stayed on the second floor and had a large room.

Why would anyone want to stay at one of the chain same old same old modern hotels? This is are 2nd stay. Lowest price we could find but twice the hotel as the rest.

“Do not stay in a 2nd floor room near the lobby. Recommend 3rd floor for maximum quietness. Tavern next door the noise goes on quite late.”

“The rooms facing the lake do also face a railway line, no issue for us, but may be an issue for light sleepers.”
