“Decent place to stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

The rooms were clean but the DELUXE continental breakfast was cold cereal or boiled eggs from a bag. Not very appetizing! There was daylight showing under my door when it was closed. I did not feel very secure in the room.

I stayed for 3 days. The hotel experience was better than I had expected. Although the building is bit old, it was relatively clean. I thought it was a good deal for this price. And the best part was the friendly front desk people. They were helpful and friendly with all my questions^^ especially Chris! Thanks!

When staying there, the shower leaked water all night and the room was near the stairs so we heard the foot traffic all night long. Also, the room was cold and the heater was extremely noisy.
