Let's get this out of the way: this is NOT A HILTON. If you want to pay upward of $250 per night, go ahead, it is your money. If you want a decent and quiet place to sleep and aren't concerned with a bunch of features that you won't use anyway within 2 miles of all the good stuff in... More

The floors were dirty, the sheets on the bed didn't seem very clean, and the TV wouldn't work beside a few... More

I would not recommend this place to noone. This Hotel is an older hotel. We had no trouble checking In. Our room was clean but there was no refrigerater. Our bed did not sleep good. At any other hotel they would have cleaned and put clean towels in your room every day and made your bed every day. NOT THIS... More
