$250 deposit is very excessive, especially for the old/dated rooms. Shower is terrible with a shower head from who knows what year, no outlets in bathroom. Definitely not worth $130-$145 a night. Needs an update or to charge a price reflecting what you get.More

we do not have a restaurant attached but there are several restaurants in very close walking distance. We do have a premium continental breakfast available in the hotel but cost does apply.
