There was a clock radio in the room which was not plugged in. The outlet was too short to plug my phone charger in.

The property was clean, yet dated. What I didn't like was we were told to call to order breakfast and then pick it up in the lobby. The room had the extension number, but there wasn't any phones in the room to be able to us.
