  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The property was clean and was in an OK neighborhood not much do right around the hotel. A little confusing the way the rooms are numbered.

  • Liked: Amenities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Staff was rude. Over priced and heater was not working. I will not recommend this to anyone. Don't pay more than $100 for a room here. They even have the room ready at the time of check inn.
