We stayed here last weekend and had a great experience. The front desk staff was fantastic (both the day and night staff) My only complaint was no free wifi and even when we paid for it we were told that it was only for one device. The rooms were clean and simple. I loved the no carpet!!

When we walked into the so-called lobby, there was the front desk clerk and her boyfriend was sitting in the corner by the front door. No one smiled and it felt creepy with this guy looking at us, not smiling or saying anything. I horrible welcome. The mattresses were terrible and the walls are so thin, we could hear the... More
