I booked this hotel on Hotwire. It had a 95% approval rating. I would give it a 25% approval rating. The staff was friendly, but the room is not good. It is so small, that I can't open my suitcase. The bed is old and bouncy. Feels like its been slept on for many years. The sheets are old as well. I'm sure they are clean, but they just don't feel fresh. Bathroom is on the new side, but it has no place to put anything. I had trouble finding the toilet paper because the only place to put it was under the sink.
