Clean and comfortable beds, but very small room
"Room was clean and the beds comfortable, but the room was very small. Barely had room for one 26 inch suitcase. I don't know what we would have done if we had 2 suitcases of that size. There would be no clear floor space to the bathroom which would have been a hazard in the middle of the night."
