After an 8-hour drive, just wanted to pick up some quick food and check in to the hotel. "Luck" for us there was a McDonald's on the opposite corner from the hotel. DON'T STOP HERE! The number of homeless beggars was astonishingly high. Go straight to hotel and check in. Sleep. Check out.
Once we got to the hotel, it was old and lighting could have been better. As other reviews have stated, the hotel is definitely dated. The elevator was one of the slowest I have ever been on. The room was OK, but the pillow firmness and the pillowcase did not match. It may say firm and be soft. Or well used and formerly firm. Upgrade of pillows needed.
When I checked out, even though we didn't leave the room that night, was told by the clerk that someone had tried to call my room. Then couldn't tell me who. There was not blinking light on the phone, so I have no idea who, if anyone, tried to call me.
