The room is what you would expect for the price. I wish it would have smelled better and it did need a good cleaning.

This hotel is very close to downtown which we liked a lot. It was wothin walking distance to many local businesses and eateries. The hotel itself was very clean and quiet during our stay. The hotel staff was very accomodating to our needs.

The room had a lipstick container on the ground and the bathroom had eye lashes on the ground. The shower curtain was ripped almost in half. The heat was provided my a plug in heater. The breakfast options were extremely limited. Overall it was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. The customer service was very friendly however.
