Just ok. Friendly check in. Arrived late afternoon and room was ready but Maid was sitting in our room on her phone when we arrived and seemed to show attitude when staff approached her. Parking was tight. Quiet and comfortable but no frills for the price. No screens on windows but still had to open to stay cool at night.

Dirty room, bugs in the draws under the sink, their water system is completely messed up.. there's no warm wate, either scolding hot or freezing cold, small parking lot, rude staff. Definitely not worth the price of the room. Ridiculous!! Never coming back!

Close to everything. Quite and clean. The only issue is the pillows-too thin and uncomfortable.
