Left a day early because this was absolutely horrible. The smell of something dead in the kitchen. Bar next door. Semi trucks not stop as well as trains. We got ZERO sleep. Don't waste your money!!!!!!!

Management response:

We disclose the train in our listing. We also mention several times it is next door to Riley's Tavern. We would have been more than willing to refund you your money if you weren't satisfied.
