Our room was clean; however, there were some stains on the blanket that were a little off putting. My husband felt the bed was extremely uncomfortable but I think that’s just personal preference. The staff were fantastic and very friendly. Something that will likely stop us from staying here again is the fact that you have to pay $15 per day to park in their underground parking lot.
