Thank you.

It is a different experience. Glad I read reviews ahead of time. Steep staircase getting to room, no tv and no place to set bags would keep me from coming back. Bed was comfy and location was great. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area and so it was a nice room at a good rate. Unfortunately we had lots of other guests that were very loud so it did not end up being the relaxation evening we planned for.

Great location, room clean, bed linens gross.

Pros: Area was convenient for my needs, free internet.
Cons: Cleanliness of bed sheets, need glass for water. Better way to reach people or call it an apartment.
Location: Good location and lots of places to eat.
I arrived at night and had to take my luggage up 5 flights of stairs, no elevator. There is no TV but they do have free internet. They do not have staff on premises. I had a hard time finding the entrance to building at night and could not get a hold of anyone to help. The room was clean but the sheets had not been changed, they were wrinkled and hairs in in. Slept on top of the covers. The climate control did not work, room was really hot. The worst is the parking which is non-existent, I ended up parking not quite a mile away and had to walk to room at night.

Cozy inn

The ruby room was awesome. We only stayed for one night but the room was clean and comfortable. A very cool place. Different from a standard hotel
