Reviewed March 25, 2013

The hotel was convenient location for our visit. Old carpet and furnishings with a musty, old smoke smell. Should have cost less for the condition of the hotel. Overpriced. There's only one other choice in the immediate area so "supply & demand". Stayed here over 15 yrs ago and it was much nicer then.
