Stayed here a couple of nights, wasn't too bad. It's kind of hard to find if you're not from the area, sort of tucked away in a corner. Room was ok, everything was clean. Water pressure was awful. It could use some updating, a mini fridge would have been nice, and the TV was breaking down. Breakfast was awesome, lots... More
