Priceline has this place as a hotel, so when I booked it for the price and my confirmation stated I would be sharing a bathroom, I figured it was a Hostel.
Never having stayed at a hostel before, I was not prepared for the sign on the door stating basically that the place had been deemed Perilous to Life. When I inquired about the sign, I was told it was because the fire department did not approve of 4 beds to a room and they had 7 rooms that were like that. I noticed that there were 9 rooms on that list, so I doubt they were being upfront about the sign. Making sure that my room was not on that list, I agreed to stay.
The downsides: Called ahead to inquire about the parking and they told me that there was plenty of parking in front of the hotel, incorrect. One lock on the door. Woke up at 2 AM freezing, old fashioned BROKEN HEATER, packed on more clothes. Noisy with paper thin doors.
The upsides: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
Clean room, clean bathroom.sink in the room, LCD 42" flat screen in the room. If I could get a straight answer about the sign on the door, I would recommend this place in warmer weather.
