I was also traveling with my furry baby and it was a great location to be able to walk with him as well. Great location- Very safe- we walked... More

Our room was tiny but clean. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the pipes were rusted. Internet was spotty. The remote for the TV would not allow... More
