I was going to give a 4 star rating, but decided on 5 as for a lower cost hotel, it was pretty nice. The hallways were a bit daunting and set me up for possible disappointment (heavy texture), but the room was very nicely updated. Nothing made me say, "eh, not walking in bare feet here" like I've experienced at... More
