This hotel is horrible! The chairs and carpets are old and dirty, the shower and sink run scalding hot or freezing cold - no in between, there is no heat! The hotel has central heating that only turns on at 10pm and shuts off by 8 am. The windows are drafty and the closet is inaccessible. Our bathroom ceiling looked like it was caving in. Most of the tv stations don’t work, and our toilet backed up and despite reporting it to the front desk, no one fixed it.

The property is ok. Adequate. On the Expedia website it offers breakfast for an additional $20 which I booked. Apparently they do not have breakfast at the hotel and would like my money refunded. They say they have be in touch with Expedia on this matter but they are still offering breakfast.
