17.00 dollars a day for parking, the garage for parking was full of scaffolding. No help at the door to enter, restaurant wasn't open and breakfast was a la carte, pay for each piece. The picture doesn't show the condition of the building as it looks in disrepair on the outside. I cancelled my reservation and went elsewhere.

The property is good. It seems construction is going on to better the facility. The only issue I have is with the huge potholes in front of the Hotel. Besides that, everything about this place is good.

The only issues with this hotel are the huge waterfilled potholes in front, and that the card reader for the parking seems defective. You have to swipe the card a few times in order for the arm to raise.

This hotel is being restored. The pavement in the parking area was terrible, and the restaurant was closed except for breakfast. The room was large and comfortable. The staff was great.
