There was a pubic hair taped to the shower wall. The property was relatively clean, other than above. One night we noticed a musty odor. The property is in need of some repairs - typical bathroom water damage, poorly repaired leaky ceiling in room, several places were paint was missing from corners. Bed was clean and comfortable. We were there rarely, mainly to sleep.

Friendly and upbeat front desk and service staff. Property definitely sonewhat dated i.e. fan in bathroom could be upgraded , elevators , etc. Breakfast buffet reasonably priced and good.while offering a variety of selections. Economically priced , ckean place to stay. Air conditioners, which cause the foul musty odors in the room, need to be serviced and cleaned out.

The hotel staff was the highlight of our stay. Very friendly and helpful throughout the stay! The room and hotel were clean but very dated and worn out to the point were things where it was immediately obvious. Overall not a bad stay but expected more at the price point.

Keith, Thank you for your review. Yes, our hotel is 34 years old; however we are on a continuous renovation schedule here. Our rooms furniture was all replaced in the summer of 2016, and all public areas in 2017. We replaced all the public area carpeting this summer and plan on replacing the room carpets next year along with the elevators. I hope that you will plan a trip next year and be impressed by what you see. Thanks again for traveling and sharing your experience.
