Depressing and shabby, needs TLC
The staff work hard here and are very helpful, but the hotel itself is very worn down and desperately in need of care. The carpet has holes in it and is dirty black in places, the paint is coming off of the walls, and the room was freezing. Definitely budget, but we've gotten much better for this price. Small room. The owners should take time to renovate. I would not stay here again, but for the location. Depressing.
