Great location in the middle of town, lots of shops and restaurants close by, easy walking distance. Didn't like parking on the street to unload, just sort of weird, then the regular parking was a couple of blocks away - on the weekends you can park on the ground level but during week you must park on the top level, not great when you come back late at night or when the weather is in the 90s. The lobby was interesting and rustic looking, very pleasant. The roof-top bar had a nice view and was good, too, the free appetizer when you order a drink was very good and helped balance out the $11 price of the drink. Then you get to the room, so small you can't even open your suitcase, carpet was not just worn looking, it was just plain dirty. Lots of water stains on ceiling, air conditioner looked like it might fall from the ceiling and was very noisy all night long. The bathroom was tiny, no counter space, no shelves, no remodeling done in a very, very long time. We checked out the next day and moved somewhere not so "historic" but cleaner, larger and much more comfortable. Oh yes, if you decide to check out early, make sure you don't listen to the young lady who tells you that you will have to pay for an extra night since you didn't give 24 hours notice - she's not correct, the 24 hour notification is if you don't show up to begin with and don't let them know, then they will bill you for a night's stay, early check-out is allowed and not penalized, except during the motorcycle week in Sturgis.
