The water was cut off with little warning. The furniture didn't appear to be clean and corners of the room were filled with dust and debris from previous guests. Do not recommend.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
So the room is nicer than you'd think it'd be based on the outside, and I really wanted to like it but the most important piece of furniture- the bed- was too hard and very smelly (the pillows stank as well) like sour BO. I couldn't sleep!

If you just need somewhere conveniently located to sleep, it works. Clean towels were available on request, microwave, and fridge. I just found it not to be very clean, mold in bathroom, no daily housekeeping service, blood stain on the bedsheet.
