We were in town for a job interview with my daughter. We accidently left the car lights on and our rental car battery died.

For the price this room is excellent. The staff is great and friendly and will help you at all times. Only draw back were some of the people who were sitting on the stair cases smoking ciggarettes all day long and hanging out in the hallways.

Upon arriving in the room found a dead roach stuck to shower curtain. Shower did not work and they needed to fix it and refused to move us to a different room. The next day we found two live roaches in the bathroom. Disgusting, will not stay here again.
