Would stay here again
My husband and I stayed here two years ago and were happy enough with the accommodations that we came back. We recently stayed here for three nights, and it was worth the price. The staff was extremely friendly, and the room was clean. The hotel is certainly outdated and would benefit from renovations, but it’s a decent place to stay.
