Best Value Downtown

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 20, 2007

This is not a luxurious place at all. If you want that, the Hotel Davenport is caddy-corner or there are plenty of other hotels Downtown for $100+/night. This hotel is a cheap chain place.
What you get here is a clean room, free parking (if available, as there are more rooms than spaces), free breakfast in the morning, free wi-fi, and superb value for the location. Practically everything is within walking distance: bars, restaurants, parks, shopping, etc.
This hotel is an older motor lodge style, so it has some weird issues. In my room, the toilet had some problems, and the a/c, until I fixed it, was stuck on the "Fan" setting making the room incredibly hot (despite a 50 degree day outside).
The staff were nice though (I was offered a move because of the a/c thing) and I never had a problem parking, although I don't believe the hotel was ever full while I was there. However, if the spaces do fill up, you can always park on the street (meters are free from 5pm - 7am).
Also, it should be noted (as it is on the hotel's web site) that the wi-fi access is not available in the entire hotel. The only router is in the office, so you absolutely must get a room close to the office to get a good signal. I specified "Wireless Access" in the requests, was given the closest room possible and had a very good signal the whole time.
Also, the building is adjacent to the railroad tracks, but in a quiet zone, and I never even heard a train.
Book through choicehotels.com and choose "Internet User's Rate" for the best deal. Even compared to some of the slummier places south of the railroad by I-90 this is an excellent deal.

Unique Quality: Location, free parking (Hotel Davenport, caddy-corner, charges $15/night), free breakfast

Directions: 1st at Lincoln with the entrance on 1st. Both are one-way (1st eastbound, Lincoln northbound) so it's best to come in from the west on 1st via Walnut Street from I-90.
