I was only at the property"overnight to sleep but i dont feel it was as advertised. I was in a so calles 3 room suite with a city view.that was probably smaller than a typical hotel room and the city view was the roof of the building next door.Room was clean and served its purpose but definately was not as adverised. Was convienient to the historical area and for where i needes to go. Would not recommend for a long term stay.

The hotel was cool for what it is; a vintage, creepy and haunted old hotel. It’s not fancy in any way, but it’s location makes up for the lack of amenities.

Small room, close to historical district though. Not very private rooms as far a sound goes.

Nightmare on Third Street

Pros: Checking out
Cons: Remove this listing from Travelocity. Customers should never be subjected to a place who's business name couldn't be farther from reality.
Location: Do not list this "hotel" on your site. Travelocity had better see this in person.
Immediately upon entering the hotel I knew it was not going to be what I expected. It was four story walk-up and I was at the top. The rooms were decrepit and extremely worn. Cracks in the walls and ceilings, carpeting worn out, a wet towel or cleaning rag hanging from the shower curtain, a shower that backed up, a toilet seat no more than 12 inches off the floor and when flushed the very small sink drain made noises like it was going to blow back the draining toilet, curtains that were too small, short and didn't close, a refrigerator that did not work, an air conditioner that sounded like rocks hitting metal, no phone, a tv that did not work, but the mattress was wrapped in plastic (protect it or the customer?). And, I think I found a mouse turd on my bag.

Do you ever visit any of these hotels yourself?!

Pros: Downtown, and that's it
Cons: Everything
It was an emergency trip to renew passport, so we wanted to be close to U.S. Customs Bldg. We didn't expect anything fancy, but this place was a dump. Had to ring bell to get to second floor office. No one in office after 6 pm or before 8 am. No soap in bathroom. Shower dripped, (didn't even use it) Small bed did not even have a top sheet. It was two small rooms on either side of a bathroom and when we left, realized that the one bedroom door had not been locked and couldn't be locked. Not only was there no coffee as promised, but the area with microwave and coffee maker was full of trash. Only thing available was bottled water. Could not wait to get out of that place.
