Not "Americinn"

Pros: The staff was very personable when we checked in and friendly.
Cons: Definitely needs some updates in the hallways and rooms.
Location: Near the freeway.
Didn't feel like this hotel was accurately represented. The hotel was quite rundown and certainly not very up to date. We had no hot water in the bathroom sink. The continental breakfast was very limited and mostly out of stock when we went down to eat. Overall, not a very safe feeling experience.
