    a trip back in time

    Staying here is a trip back to the 1920s. I think it's time to update the floor coverings and other finishes. The public area has its own distinct fragrance. The room was comfortable enough, with a private bath. Again, the finishes are older. Great price compared to everything else in town!

    Unpretentious

    The Chameleon is an old hotel frequented by old men. The carpet, as all the decor, finds its inspiration from 70s basement. What it may lack in style the owners make up in service. The rooms are clean, beds firm and the amenities serviceable. It's a cheap hotel run on a budget. Accept that and you will have a good stay.
