Last minute switch from being booked at another nearby hotel I really didn’t want to stay at. The check in was simple. The red and gray decor of the interior of the hotel is drab in nature. I received a room with two beds on the second floor towards the end of the hall.

Very clean, good fresh breakfast, all vending machines were empty maki g it so you had to go to front desk. Comfortable bed but pillows too soft (4 pillow, could use more of a combination). Would stay again.

"Upper floors in back are generally the quietest. Although this hotel is further back off the road so it probably does not matter as much."
"Good luck!"
"It's wise to ask for a room away from families and teenagers if you seek a quiet room for the evening."
"Room on the first floor was quiet and easier than worrying about elevator with luggage"
"Ask for a room on the top floor and at end of hall."
$102 - $218 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
