    I’ll start with the positives. Which would be the staff, real friendly and professional. Another plus is the free parking and free WiFi. Now, the negatives. First entering the room, the bathroom and tub was dirty. I didn’t want to call and ask to be cleaned because then I would’ve had to waited outside or in my car during that duration. So I just ended up wiping it down my self with some disinfecting wipes I had. Next, there’s no ac or heating system in the room. You just get a fire place and ceiling fan, which made the room a bit stuffy. Then, at 11/12pm we unfortunately had those loud neighbors who were playing music and just being really loud. At several points in the night there was even a dog barking. I called the front desk and they gave us the option to move, but being around midnight we didn’t want to park all our belongings up and move to a different room. So the front desk said they’d go and talk to them. Also, our room was right next to a busy street and you could literally hear all the traffic throughout the night. Again, not realizing that till late at night. It was an ok stay but I can’t say I’ll be staying here again for the rate they charge for a night.
