Good 6.0
Stinky fridge
It's a nice older hotel and the amenities were fine. Customer service was excellent. The fridge in our room was not working and it ruined some food that we had put in it. It rotted and made the whole room stink when you opened the fridge door. We were next to the alley, which can be noisy and hard to sleep if you're a light sleeper like me.

Cute, tiny, noisy
Great location. And a nice hotel...if you're traveling the summer...and pack nothing. The room is so so so small. My daughter and I didn't have much room for a suitcase. And then the radiator started gurgling at around 5am.

The Willows
The Willows hotel gives you a bed and breakfast type vibe. It is very cozy. The building is somewhat older so it gives you a more homey feel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. They also serve breakfast in the morning which consisted of a breakfast sandwhich, hot and cold cereal, fruit coffee and juice. I would definitely stay again. The hotel is also positioned in a neighborhood but there are shopping and restuarant choices available by foot.
