We stayed 3 nights and liked the hotel so much we booked a 4th! Roger, Tina and the rest of the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful during our visit to the city. The rooms were clean, a bit musty smelling at first but the hotel is over 200 years old! A heated pool and hot tub would... More

The staff were most professional, proficient, and executed an excellent job of bringing the utmost comfort to me and my husband for our honeymoon. They were friendly and eager to be of help in all things. The pool and weight room were resourceful, although small. Other than that, all of our needs for traveling were met with fast & friendly...

I've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express properties and hotels of different star ratings and a bed is ultimately just a bed. What makes the difference is the energy of the staff. There is a lovely lady looking after breakfast but other than her no other staff made this stay memorable. Checkin was bland and unfriendly. This included no recognition... More

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and stayed in room 407. Commerce Street was packed and we had to call the hotel to figure out where to park, since they only have around 70 spots "reserved" for the hotel. There are signs in the lot across the street that say the lot is strictly enforced but there were numerous cars... More

Arrived at hotel restaurant after lunch hours so the restaurant manager (Ruben Barragan) suggested something in the bar. He bought us the Best cheesecake in the city. We have had several delicious meals in the restaurant always finishing with cheesecake. Thank you Mr Barragan

Overall the hotel was OK, primarily due to the history of being built in 1878 as the county jail. I wasn't aware of the history when I booked. The biggest problem was the strong musty odor in my room. If I had read other reviews before I booked I would have been aware. I had to unplug the mini-refrigerator in... More

Love and want to support efforts to preserve historic buildings, particularly when open to the public. Preserving this former City Jail is a great example. Very well done!

We didn't know about the hotel's history until we arrived. Very interesting! The hotel is ok for its age, but the parking situation is horrible. Although we paid the hotel to park, there are not many parking spaces in their parking lot. It was very hectic trying to get all of our items across the street and up the stairs... More
