Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Entrance and facade renovated on Travel Channel's Hotel Impossible
  • Many rooms are large suites, with renovated units sporting flat-screen TVs and new furniture
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel
  • Convenient location near restaurants, cafes and shops
  • Downtown Coffee cafe is popular with locals and guests alike
  • Free parking

Cons

  • Dated property has ongoing renovations
  • Parking garage is dilapidated and covered in graffiti
  • Rooftop pool is in dire need of a facelift and is often closed for maintenance
  • Bathrooms in some suites have outdated fixtures
  • Views from most suites are of parking garages

Bottom Line

Things at this low-end budget property are finally starting to look up. The Travel Channel program Hotel Impossible featured the hotel in 2012, and gave the hotel's entrance area and cafe a much needed facelift -- including upgraded signage, landscaping additions, and de-cluttering of the cafe's windows (formerly covered in Post-It notes). Rooms are all very spacious, making it well-suited for families, and the aging bathrooms are getting modernized. The Astroturf-covered pool area is especially atrocious, however, and shows the dire state the property was in before being purchased. The renovations should hopefully bring more improvements.
