Nice and clean
Excellent stay if you just want to crash for the night and have super convenient access to transit.

Diamond in the rough
Doesn't look like much on the outside and isn't in a great spot as far as views go, but once inside we were impressed by the friendly front desk clerk and the cleanliness of the front lobby. Our hotel room felt clean and safe as well. I do agree with another reviewer that it was hot in the room and the ac is noisy (as is having the window open), but I guess I was willing to put up with it for just one night. Perhaps because we were there in mid-October there was no problem with parking. We dropped our stuff off in the room and then hopped in the car and headed to The Sticky Wicket - just a 7 minute drive away. We only spent one night at The Arbutus Inn, but we were mostly pleased with our experience.

Affordable, comfortable hotel close to downtown
I stayed at Arbutus Inn during marathon weekend. This was a great choice! The rooms were relatively sound proof (heard occasional muffled sounds in the brief time I was in the room during the daytime) and it was completely quiet at nighttime. The beds were comfortable too. The location was decent; a bus stop with frequent routes was located at the front of the property, though I chose to make the 20-minute walk into town because the weather was perfect. I will definitely stay here again.

$150 security deposit made me nervous.
This was only my second time staying here and like the friendliness of the staff. I don't think the $150 deposit is necessary. How would the hotel ever make a claim anyway? After all, there is no initial inspection done before the deposit is taken. It only served to make me nervous that they would find something to charge me for that I didn't do. If I don't come back it will be for this reason.
