Overall a pleasant stay

"Pleasant experience. The hotel we normally stay was booked so chose this one based on availability. It was close to downtown, the beds were comfortable, the room was clean. An issue we has was the tub would not fill up because the stopper no longer worked. For the price, we will stay again."…"
