The room was small with 2 queen size beds. The bed and pillows were good. The room seems clean and has hair dryer. Overall, it was a nice stay for a low-cost hotel; don't expect a 4 or 5 star hotel experience.

“There are no good rooms as far as I can tell.”
  • stained curtain would not cover window so we had to close it in the door
  • This was the iron. covered in tape and bare wires where plug should be
  • The phone was missing a cord. The front desk was notified and did nothing for the 3 days I was t
  • curtains didn't close so we used the room pen to fasten them.
