This hotel is a good place to sleep if you want to arrive late and leave early. Otherwise, avoid like the plague! We came here because we needed a hotel that was good for our budget and pet friendly. We planned on staying two nights, but surmised that our stay would be shorter once we checked in.
We were warned that if our pet was a nuisance, we would be fined a hefty fee. But NEVER were we warned that renovations were ongoing, let alone in the floor above us. We tried to take a nap upon check in, but drills and stomping directly overhead prevented that. We gave them the benefit of the doubt and went out. We arrived back to a group of guys in the room next to us being loud, smoking weed, and banging down beer bottles. We ignored the conversations between the paper thin walls and tried to sleep.
We were then awoken at not a minute past 8AM as the men above us were doing construction, AGAIN. Wanting a relaxing vacation where we could actually sleep in, we noped the heck out of there and headed to a nicer hotel. They should be getting one star, but the fact that they refunded us a night and slightly apologized warrants a two star review. We will not return.
