Old and tired property. In need of refurbishment and update. It appears to be an old low-end apartment building that was converted into a hotel. TV’s didn’t work, and second story units do not have elevator so you need to lug your bags up the stairs. Roomy, but definitely overpriced. Website photos make it look MUCH better than it actually is.

The staff was very friendly. It's a bit outdated, but still clean and reasonably priced.

Very outdated hotel, check in was at 3 pm but the room wasn’t ready until 3:30 even though they called at 2:30 and said it was ready.
