Place is nice and clean. Facilities are comfortable. Breakfast is nothing special but it was included in the price. Not a family friendly hotel.

I really enjoyed my stay. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. The building could use a make-over but after a few hours it did not matter because you have a great time. I am pretty sure it is even 10X better without the pandemic.
