This is a hotel is somewhat of a mixed bag. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food at the restaurant was excellent, and the location of hotel itself is good.
On the other hand, the room furnishings were very tired and in need of replacement. The lobby is nicely furnished so it is clear that they do have the capability of making this a very nice hotel. As others have mentioned, there is simply a wall mounted, extremely noisy, AC unit. While it is not the hotels fault that there is no central AC, they do have the ability to replace the wall mounted units with clean modern units. The ones they have are rather dirty and really belong in an hourly motel.
I think your satisfaction with this hotel will depend on how much you pay. The nice staff, good location, and great food can help you overlook the tired hotel rooms... if you pay the right price.
