We booked this hotel because a friend was getting married nearby. The rate was good, but the hotel feels like it is being held together with duct tape and wire. The room was musty, and no windows opened. This was a shame, because the room was too warm, even though outside it was fresh and cool. Turning on the a/c was impossible, becasue the room air conditioner was very noisy, and there was no overhead fan. The breakfast, which was included, was greasy sausage patties and scrambled eggs and cereal, and bad coffee. The smell of the cooking sausage permeated our room from about 6am on, which made for some queasy wakeups.
The little workout room was also musty, with no ventilation. The sound insulation is almost non-existent. We heard footsteps above us, showers on both sides, and outside, people ascending and descending the staircase sounded like they were right in the room. Very noisy.
The only thing we liked was the space in the room, and the good bed. But the bare spots on the walkways, and the dry rot on the staircases made this place feel like it was one step away from a tear-down. If you have a family, and price is an issue, this is a good place. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
