    Find somewhere else

    The smell in our room was disgusting. I was so tired and just sprayed Lysol but it didn’t do much.

    Very clean hotel room

    Rooms were very clean and there were actually four towels each for the four people in the room. Most hotels have 2 or 3 sets in the bathroom and you always have to call down to have some more sent up.

    Hidden non-descript gem

    Loved this place and stayed multiple times. Exterior lends itself to an older unimpressive hotel, though the interior is completely updated. There are a few minor problems with some rooms given age of hotel (one room had problematic toilet, one had carpet squares not completely fixed, one room had lingering smoke smell). However, don't get the wrong impression. These minor issues aside, this hotel offers a comfortable stay with updated interior decor, free parking, and premium satellite tv, that I think make this place ‐ comparatively speaking - a great find for the price.

    Couldn’t sleep

    They put a family with kids right above us and they were jumping for hours. We couldn’t sleep. They should put people with kids on ground level
