It feels older than it is. It's dingy and depressing.

Satisfactory but not great

Pros: Had a room when others are filled. Close to where I needed to be.
You get a small shampoo and soap. Nobody called for my wake-up call. Nobody at desk in the morning. Breakfast is what fits on a small table in the entry area. It works as a place to stay but don't expect anything fancy.

The worst thing ever for me and hotelsbis cleanliness. My sheets had deops of blood on them and I had to change them myself. The room had zero items for kitchen in it. No alarm clock, no coffee maker of any kind. The smell was awful. From the time you check in until you check out, all you can smell is mildew. It was awful. The stairwells and halls were filthy. The breakfast you can grab and go consisted only of coffee and granola bars, terrible selection. Overall this hotel will never have my presence grace it nor will I recommend it to anyone.
