We found the location perfect for our needs across the road from Pioneer Park and near many restaurants. The bar was quite the scene. Breakfast options were limited but good and straight off the hotplate. Great staff made for a fun stay.
Stayed in king suite overlooking pioneer park. Very spacious and unique layout - I loved it! Pros: super comfy bed and pillows, quiet, blackout curtains, great Wi-Fi. Cons: The only guest entrance is In the front of the hotel. You have to park behind the hotel, carry your bags and walk around to the front of the hotel. Safety issue is the poor lighting!
