Good Stay

"Horrible not clean room."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The bedspread had cigarette holes, the no smoking room stank. .There was no sign it had been COVID cleaned. everwhere else I stayed had white bedspreads. Way over priced and in a terrible neighborhood. No real place to walk a pet. If I hadn't driven so far that day I would have left. The hotels on the otherside of the street appear much better. Never stay here.

"Great Bar"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our only complaint was the gym, it was dirty and most of the equipment did not work. You would be better off without a gym.
