This was recently renovated and you could tell the existing building was old. But they did a good job of gutting it and remodeling it to make it modern. However the old building was tight and cramped, and so is this one a little bit.
The hotel was very clean and nice since everything is pretty new. My room was nice and clean, but it was definitely a bit small and cramped for my taste. The bed took up most of the room.
The bathroom also had a pedestal style sink with no room to put anything more on there except a toothbrush. So you'll have to store toiletries and towels elsewhere. They even put the soap and towels and stuff in the closet. Shower was also quite cramped, but I don't fault the hotel for not having space to work with here.
But those are minor complaints. The staff was very friendly and I had a quiet room that was well maintained and clean. Besides the tight room and stuff it was a good stay and a fair price.
