4/5 Good

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The hotel is dated. During CV19 would have been a good time to start a major overhaul of the facility. The carpet made the whole room smell bad. I was denied the simple use of a iron. The receptionist had a terrible attitude. I was charged $10 for a replacement key after misplacing mine. The parking is not free as there is a person that changes you something every time you leave. The place is definitely NOT a four or five star hotel. It reminds me of somewhere my college class mates and I may rent during spring break. Maybe years ago it was in better condition but not anymore.
