Table and two chairs in room was great! I really appreciated that. Only two things not-so-good. (1) Bin for cigarette butts right outside my door. Every time someone lit up, I got the fumes. The whole area outside the rooms needs to be non-smoking. (2) Loud music in the fashionable yuppie bar-and-restaurant at the front of the property on Crown Street. I couldn't hear the music, but the muffled thudding kept me awake until it stopped, On Saturday night I think it was 2.30 in the early morning when I realized there was quiet and I could sleep now. That venue should close at midnight. It is too close to the motel.
