I was surprised they don’t offer complimentary breakfast. I’m so used to every hotel offer that I did not even pay attention when I booked my room

Staff was pleasant and the room was clean. They were very accommodating and none judgmental. Their pool is not the biggest but it’s clean and has a handicap lift.

Close to where we needed to be. Very basic hotel it was clean. Don’t appreciate having to put a damage/theft deposit down or the parking fee. But that’s business in the big city.
