Very old facility, furniture dirty and need to be replaced, hall ways very dirty and full of litter, have not been swept in years.staff friendly, other then coffee no breakfast. Bathroom clean and kept up, street very loud all night, bring ear plugs. Overall it's a ok for a night but highly overpriced for what you get.

Hotel on a very busy main road
The parking lot is extremely tight and it is a squeeze even in a smaller, compact SUV vehicle. The cleanliness was great! However, the location was a huge disappointment. The images of the hotel were very misleading and did not show the hotel being located on one of the busiest main roads of that city! Would not stay again ONLY because we had wanted a more quiet, relaxed "out of town" feel, not a "right in the middle of a busy city" feel.
