I’ve stayed here many times in the past however this time the room was somewhat uncomfortable. The hotel bought the old motel next to it. These rooms are not fully renovated. The bathrooms still need some work. In addition the cooling system was not working properly. The mattress and bed were uncomfortable. Ext time I will be sure to stay in the original rooms…
