After reading all the bad reviews about the front desk person, I was anxious to see what our experience would be. As soon as we entered, the lady told us she'd move us to a balcony room for free and move us to the opposite side of the hotel as the college kids who just checked in. It being Halloween weekend, she was a little grumpy about "those crazy kids." But all in all, it was a nice stay. It's not fancy, for sure. But it was fine and it's located within walking distance of State Street and the beach. Rooms were clean. Bathroom had poor lighting. I agree with other complaints about the pillows -- too thick. But it was a good hotel for the price.
