It was good to see that all the room was very clean. Location is not far away from downtown. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was not the typical continental. It was only bread, coffee, protein bars and yogurt. Overall really good.

Excellent for what we needed, beds & bathroom very clean, staff was very nice & courteous. Only issue, left a closed pizza box out on the sink counter above the fridge for a couple hours & when I went to open it up it was covered in ants! Ants came in through the wall where the sink counter is apparently. Don't recommend leaving food out lol.
