You get what you pay for... no coffee machine, no fridge, no microwave and no breakfast. But we did have the company of a 1.5" spider! Stay somewhere else! The only good thing was the friendly girl at front desk.

We've stayed here before, and we know it's a bare bones place - no refrigerator, microwave, etc. But this time they didn't even have a working ice machine. So no ice. For a few dollars more I'll stay somewhere else from now on.
