Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
The place provides decent sleeping options at a lower price than local competitors and the room is in good basic shape, though rather old on maintenance. However, the wifi is public,the breakfast options (cheap cereal, juice and coffee) feel more like gas station fare than the advertised "continental breakfast" and it would have been appreciated if the owner had mentioned that the room was facing the street.

It was a smoking room, and the appearance was less than stellar. There were places where the wall was spackeled but no repainted. Furniture stained and Quilts were stained. The bed was comfortable despite the other issues.
