The location is great, room was clean. Wish they had told us about the lack of breakfast. The deal with the restaurant across the street only applies if you're willing to wait 45 minutes to get in.

I checked in early but the room wasn’t ready. I did the check in process and then came back later. The lady at the desk said she couldn't find me, I told her I had already checked in 2 hrs ago, I know I’m in there. She replied “are you sure you have the right hotel” what, are kidding me I thought. She finally found me (smh). Room 234 was given to us. The carpet was so wet! The room smelled very musty The odor lingered our whole stay. I’m sure it was the shower curtain because every time I took a shower the smell was so strong from the curtain. House keeping should be reporting the musty smell from this room!. Our bolt lock on room 234 did not lock. It did not line up to lock up. Breakfast is not provided due to COVID which is understandable but don’t advertise it’s included if it’s not. Update your rooms to what Is offered. Positive things are that the location is Convenient, rooms are good size.
