Very good looking place, check in was great. Room was clean, but the restroom double sink was clod and the the water the back up had a real bad smell. Complained to the front desk when we left for the evening, they would have someone take a look at it. returned to the room after midnight, didn't get to use it till the morning and it was not fixed.

The ac in the halls was turned off. The only place it was on was in the lobby area and of course the rooms. The elevator was another place the ac was off. I hope it never fails with someone in there. No breakfast like other best westerns. Not even a sweet roll. Coffee was a one cup at a time machine in lobby area. Good luck if there are several coffee drinkers.
