Nicely renovated rooms. The bathroom sink area (separate from the shower and toilet) is combined with Refrigerator, microwave and small table and chairs. My only real complaint is that the shower, while real nice, is tiny, about 3'x3'. I'd have liked to see a smaller "kitchen" and larger shower.

Very clean property and much better AC than s lot of the older hotels. Nice staff. Better pillows needed instead of the very small pillows would be especially on s king size bed. They are about the size of a small throw pillow rather than a bed pillow. Better toiletries needed as well. The soap is the most drying soap I’ve ever used. No conditioner in our room so I don’t know if that is standard or housekeeping forgot to leave some.

The room is very small. We had two queen beds and there is barely room to get around the bed. Also the person sleeping close to the window had a hard time sleeping because the light shined through the edge of the curtain into their eyes. We woke up early to the sound of someone pacing back and forth above us. The location was great but wouldn’t recommend.
