We needed a place to stay so we stopped here. Got to room it was hot and smelled musty. Floor was dirty. Bathroom counter dirty. Curtain was broken. TV did not work,maintenance did fix it. Bed ok but not the best. Numbers off a/ c unit. Says just opened on the sign. This place needs a lot of work.

It would be nice if they had coffee in the rooms and some kind of breakfast in the lobby. Otherwise it was a good and clean place. Also I had to go upstairs to get ice. The one on the lower floor did not work.

First of all, this is NOT a luxury hotel. Not for families with young children. For the very inexpensive price, you get a clean room and friendly staff. No frills. Lots of construction happening in the area. But easy access to restaurants, site-seeing, shopping.

I booked 3 rooms 2 weeks prior to our arrival.

We enjoyed our stay. We had 2 rooms and because we were traveling with pets our options were limited. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The one complaint. The wifi went down on night 2. We would stay here again.
