I have read other reviews about this hotel - most of which I agree with. First, the room safe uses and old type key but it did keep our valuables safe - a skeleton key could open it if a thief decided to raid room safes. We were in a room clear in the back on the first floor (Room 130). Room had a very musty smell which played havoc with my wife's allergies. Walked on the floor in my white socks - after a very short time the socks were very, very dirty on the bottom. Not a good sign. WiFi in the room is non-existent. Access in the lobby area is good and free. Meals were adequate - service in the dining area, although they were trying, left something to be desired. Room needs some additional electrical outlets. Bathroom was okay but like the room definitely needs some renovating. Having a choice, I would look elsewhere for a room until renovations take place at this hotel.
