    The hotel is old and historic but has not been properly taken care of. It does a good job of taking you back in time unfortunately that includes uncomfortable small beds, strange smells and outdated everything. Go visit the hotel, stay somewhere else.More

    Our room was nice and cool, no a/c was needed but that was in May, not July or August. Plenty of parking available in nearby garage, a bit of a walk, but not uncomfortable. Creative juggling I would recommend!
