Great place to stay. Location is very Convenient. Staff including housekeeping are AWESOME! Very helpful & friendly. More ammenities than most expensive hotels. It can get a little loud at night but its still a safe place to stay. Housekeeping could improve level of cleanliness especially in bathtubs/showers. Also a little update to the furniture & the lighting/electrical would make a huge differance. Overall the place is comfortable with decent rates & great customer service. I would stay again
