We stayed here for two nights. When we checked in the woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Our room was pretty nice...comfy bed and good bedding. However, cleanliness was somewhat lacking...the carpet had numerous stains and the bathroom floor was so sticky that we put towels down on the floor to avoid walking on it. Another concern was hotel security. All of the outside doors were posted that they remained locked at all hours, but we came and went and never had to use our room key. Ironically, they changed the password for the wireless access on the second day of our stay (more security for using the internet than for entering the hotel?). So when I wanted to sign onto my laptop it would not work. I called the front desk for assistance and got no answer (9 PM). After calling repeatedly my husband finally walked down to the desk but there was nobody there. Finally he went looking and calling out and a man finally showed up from another room with no explanation for not being available. I'm glad I was not calling the front desk for an emergency. Overall, this hotel was adequate but if I returned to the area I would try a different hotel.
