From checking in you can already tail that they’re trying to be upgraded and modern but haven’t reached that point yet. Lobby restroom was barley working. Our room air-conditioning was working fine when we got there went out to dinner and came back and it was warm in the room by the next day air conditioning was not working at all. The sent Maintenance to work on it but nothing was able to be fixed and only got a $30 reduction from my room rate. It is close to everything but wouldn’t recommend.
