we stayed here on a sunday night at the beginning of june 2014. There is no parking lot and good luck finding a space along the street. Numerous times during our stay we had to drive around the neighborhood for quite a while before finding a space. The parking is 2 hours, except from 6pm to 8am. Then 2 hour limit starts again at 8am. The entrance to the building is a set of double narrow doors. One opens, god help you in getting through them if you are above normal size. There was no staff there the day of arrival, nor did we ever see anyone at all during the stay. This could be a problem if you needed anything or forgot toiletries. I would suggest taking your own soap, shampoo because what they provide is in a dispenser in the shower and it looks gross. Several types of product are mixed in the dispenser. There is no toothpaste or hairdryer provided either. Thank god i had all my own stuff. The rooms are old but clean, trim missing in the bathroom and a hole in the drywall near the shower. Breakfast is provided and is self service, a variety of breads, 2 muffins and hot and cold cereal as well as coffee to make yourself and hot chocolate and some tea bags. I needed a regular tea bag, there were none. OJ and milk and condiments were in the fridge. Overall, i doubt id stay here again. Would have nicer accommodations at a chain hotel.
