This place was run down for sure.. The floors in the room were a bit sticky.. When we checked in we had to ring a bell and than wait.. Got our card keys and they worked once than had to go back and get re-keyed again and also had to wait longer after ringing the bell this time.. Overall not god awful but by no means good/great..

The room was clean enough, very large and spacious, but very dated with some areas in need of repair. Since this hotel allows smoking in some rooms, the hallways reek of cigarette and weed smoke! Despite our room being a "king suite" and having a sink, fridge, 3 burner stove and microwave, there are no dishes, no pots and pans, no silverware. was I supposed to bring my own? I must have missed the memo! The balcony outside the living room was nice, but in great need of a fresh coat of paint. The whirpool tub was great! Clean, worked perfectly, and we were glad to have it! The room itself is huge, which was a nice plus, ample comfy seating and the bed was comfy, although all the bedding and furnishings are very dated. Despite advertising "free wi-fi", it did not work in our room at all! I might book here again, in a pinch, but would definitely explore all other options first.

Nice hotel close to major attractions.

The hotel was very close the the major attractions in the area. The room was bigger than I expected. I think the room could have used another a.c. unit. The a.c. cooled the bed room but not the rest of the suit. Over all it was a great value for the cost of the room.
