At $114 per night I think this hotel was quite nice considering the price was very reasonable. Breakfast was good, staff were nice, parking was easy. My only negative comment is that the room i was given was on the 2nd floor directly in front of the elevator, meaning i heard everyone coming and going from my room. It wasn't terrible but I could also hear others out on their balconies and street noise because the patio doors are very old and don't look like they have been updated with the rest of the interior space.
