3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I had a fantastic first impression when I first arrived at my hotel. Arrived 4 hours and was hoping to get an early check in or at least park my car while I went out and explored and they honoured the early check in 4 hours earlier the my original stated time. Unfortunately at 12pm when I arrived back to my hotel there was a note on the door stating that they were testing the fire alarms from 8:30-2:30

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We liked the layout and the roominess of the suite. As well, the staff had gone beyond the expectation of cleanliness. The Inn is within walking distance to many amenities.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Friendly staff. Always willing to help if needed. Across the street from the beautiful gardens at Beacon Hill. Cramped quarters, no view out the windows except the parking lot, and the back of buildings. Very tight parking spaces, and no carts to move your luggage. Stairs would prevent that anyway.
Stayed 3 nights in Mar 2021
