Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Beware of bed bugs!! I received multiple bed bug bites confirmed by a dermatologist, but the hotel manager refuses to refund my stay or help with medical bills because I called the hotel on Monday after my Friday night stay. She said I called “too late” and she refuses to accept any liability. BEWARE!!

I will admit after reading reviews I was a bit nervous to stay but was very pleased with this stay. Room was clean. Bed and pillows were clean and fresh. Breakfast was surprisingly nice. Everything about this reasonable hotel was decent.
