Spring Break Trip

The location and free internet and wifi was a plus. You should only stay here when the weather is pleasant enough to have the windows open because there is no A/C. The price for a week stay was the cheapest compared to other hotels in the area.

Good Value, Shared Bathrooms A Hassle

Stay on Main is a pretty good value for the money if you can't afford to stay somewhere more expensive. The decor is pleasant, my only complaint is the shared bathroom situation, which is especially a hassle if you need to go in the middle of the night and your key card stops working.

Very Small!

This place is VERY small.. only twin beds and looks scary but its not... this staff is okay but could be a little friendlier.... just make sure you get a private room with a private bathroom. I would stay again if I had to.
