This place is a waste of your money. Way too much hype for this place. $33 for a semi private room which literally the double bed barley fits in. I am 5 foot 10 and when laying on the bed I can barley fit. My head and feet touching either wall. There is really no character/atmosphere to the place either. It felt like I was in a jail cell.
There was a pool table with some rips in the fabric and a computer that worked pretty good. The coffee in the morning was $1, and there is no free breakfast anymore. The kitchen near the lodging has no bowls or cups and you have to eat your food in the kitchen not in the restaurant which really disconnects you from any sort of socialization.
Theres quite a few bugs in the restaurant area. One night was enough here.
