Avoid at all cost. Everything is broken, even phone did not work. Except for the sweet young women at frontdesk who really was nice and helpful, the whole place is a teardown. Really nothing else to say.

Bathroom fans did not work in any of the rooms, we had black mold on the walls in the bathroom. The bathroom door in poor shape half of the veneer finish peeled off. Room door didn't lock, thank goodness for the door chain.... More
