Hotel was just okay. They desperately need some new mattresses. The whole property is showing its age. It's good for the price I guess, until they hit you with parking fees at checkout. Car barely fit in the spot and I could see paying for indoor or covered parking. No reason to charge guests to use that lot. Don't think...

I specifically called the hotel asking if they had quiet rooms and was told yes. At check-in I again asked for the quiet room and was assured it was.

The staff are friendly. Rooms are of a decent size. Beds are comfortable - it was what I needed after 16hrs of flying and 2 hrs driving. All facilities are in good shape - including the pool, gym, reception.....etc.
