If I were to guess, I'd say that this was an old motel, purchased by one or more recent college graduates, perhaps from SOU across the street. As others mentioned, the management and staff are very welcoming and friendly.
The furnishings are spartan, and many of them remind me of things we got my daughter when setting her up in her first off-campus apartment. No desk. No closet, but a metal rack with hangers and shelf space. As a result, horizontal storage space is a bit tight, though it was enough for two of us. The bed felt old when I first sat on it, but it was actually fairly comfortable. No decorations on the walls, but multiple paint colors. The bathroom was fine, and obviously updated. Overall; minimal, but functional.
The most annoying thing was the room key--it took me a while to not-quite master the correct combination of insert, pull out slightly, turn, pull out a tiny bit more and turn again that was needed to open the door. That had me a bit nervous about getting back late from a play, when no-one would be in the office to help us. But I got it to work after a little fiddling.
No breakfast. There is a good, albeit expensive breakfast place next door, where we ate on an earlier trip. This time, we ate across town, where we were meeting somebody. If we weren't, we would have just made use of the fridge and microwave in the room.
Not sure if they have free wifi. I saw a locked network, but they didn't give me a password when I checked in. Wasn't worried about it, given that I had lots of data, and we were mostly interested in seeing a play.
Overall, I'd definitely stay there again if I only needed a room for a night or two, and my preferred locations weren't available. But it's not my style for longer stays. It might be more for you if you're either in school or have only recently graduated. Or if you're older, but want to harken back to the days of crashing out in your college friend's apartment.
I have been here 5 years ago and at this time I rated this place very good.
This year, I was really disappointed. the first room I was assigned to was not very clean, and I refused it because of poor cleanliness.
Than I have been to room #206, it was ok, but nothing special.
Are there new owners? this was such a nice and special place but now it is only a standard, mediocre motel, and not very clean and well maintained.
And, wifi was terrible and out of service most of the time. very annoying!
