the downtowner is a hip trendy hotel the look from outside is a bit scary. but on inside it is very nice 2 issues 1) there’s no live tv, just some REALLY BAD streaming service 2) the inside of “the old motel” where the pool was, has been filled in and turned into a lounge area where people hang out , of which you can hear everything in your room including the club, dance music the guests were playing because of those reasons I would not stay here again

The room was clean and staff very helpful. It was disappointing that there was no pool.

Just decent

Stayed here because of good reviews. Don't regret it, but won't be here again. Very basic. Breakfast was just stale pastries. Pool was closed because they didn't have a lifeguard. Room cleaning was lacking. They have a whisper rule after 10, which is due to thin walls. Just overall, very lackluster.

Quirky place. Fabulous location.

Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms in the midst of some renovations.
Staff pleasant. Room was fine, though in the middle of some renovation. Quirky 60's charm.

Good location

Pros: Location
Cons: Comfort of bed
Location: right in the heart of everything. Loads to do in area all within walking distance.
Right in the middle of the downtown area. Older hotel but room was fine. Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help us. Parking lot is small but plenty of parking in municipal lot right behind hotel. We were close to all the small shops and restaurants that line the main street through town. We were attending an event at SPAC and this was a short drive to that location. Overall a good deal for the price of the room.
