After reading the hotel's website and what they offered, $130 for the night didn't sound that bad, especially because we were on a budget for this visit. We already made arrangements to stay at the Motel 6 for two nights, which was significantly cheaper, but once we did a little research and found out that this hotel was offering much... More
