You get what you pay for…don’t let the price fool you. I appreciated them changing my Room, but found myself looking out the window to check on my car constantly. Homeless people and a lot of foot traffic everywhere. The aroma of urine and marijuana filled the breezeways. Bathroom was filthy and I was so worried about the sheets I slept in a sleeping bag I carry for pure emergencies. It was only one night so it served it purpose. Not certain how much business they get but my “non smoking room” definitely didn’t match the description. Had the immediate feeling there was once or could be a chalk outline at any time. I think I’ll research longer next time.
