This hotel was undergoing some renovations so if you are going to be there during the day-make sure you have ear plugs. We called front desk to inquire when the construction stopped for the day and he replied "the one above you or below you?" so obviously there was a lot going on. Weekend was much quieter. The area around... More

Will NEVER bid with Priceline again. Booked 4 nights at this hotel and it was absolutely the worst experience of our lives. The first night we arrived and the desk clerk was one of the rudest people. We had asked for two queen beds and they gave us a king. Called down for two blankets and three pillows, they brought... More

We have stayed in hotels that were twice the price that were not as nice. The check- in was smooth and front desk friendly. The room was very clean... More

This hotel has a number of problems that I honestly had never experienced in my previous travels, including mold in the bathroom, peeling wallpaper, paint scratches and chips everywhere, dirty pillowcases, dirty couch, dirty carpet, no fridge (until we complained several times), friendly but unprofessional staff, etc, etc. I understand they may be undertaking some renovations at the hotel soon...
