For a budget hotel, I thought Mansion View was great. I refused to spend $170 for the Hilton. Yes, that's right, $170 for a standard double BEFORE tax= stupid, lame, outrageous. Especially since last time I stayed there, it was filthy. And you don't get a better room aside from maybe decor. We were only there for one night (actually, just like 9 hours) so even if Mansion View was bad it would have been tolerable for such a short amount of time. But it wasn't bad at all! We got a double suite and it was $90 after tax. I heard one of the staff tell someone on the phone the rooms were newly renovated. I think they did a sufficient job. The room was clean and comfortable and I don't care about decor, it's not important. But it was perfectly acceptable. The lobby was nice and the staff was really very friendly. I went in to ask if there was a place nearby that sells package liquor and they recommended a place and even offered to call them up to ensure that they sell what I was looking for. And, we were without a bottle opener and they let us use their only wine/bottle opener for the whole night. They also offer free continental breakfast. It's not an awesome breakfast but at least they offer stuff - dry cereal, packaged oatmeal, frozen waffles, etc. I didn't eat the breakfast but I think it's nice for them to have free breakfast at all and I'm not a snob. If you're on a budget and not a snob, you'll be happy with Mansion View. The only "con" would be that it's near where the train runs through town that affected my mates sleep but I'm a heavy sleeper so I didn't notice it.
