This place is old with no noise barriers. We heard the sports cars racing up and down Commercial Blvd. all night long. Then there was the commuter train with a whistle louder than any freight train I have ever heard that blasted at regular intervals. The beds were supposed to be queens but were doubles. The beds were old and saggy in the middles. We had to ask for pillow cases for the pillows and wash cloths. They would only allow us 2 wash cloths. The continental breakfast was hidden from view for a good reason. Only cold cereal and bread that could be toasted. No fresh fruit or danish of any kind.
