Great clean Hotel and good location for the price. The staff were very friendly. Excellent Wi-Fi as well, especially if you have to work. A Brisk 15-minute walk and your in downtown. Would definitely stay here again.

Our visit was about $200.00 a night, which was probably $100.00 too much. The décor was late 60s. The beds were old and uncomfortable. The bathroom sink had missing light bulbs in the sockets (is that safe?) We had about 7 channels on the TV which included 2 sales channel and
