Only stayed because pet friendly for extra $10. After my feet stuck to the floor and my fingers when setting the clock, I wouldn't step foot in that shower. Never had a toilet where you have to yank the lever up in order to flush it

I stayed here 4 nights while attending a nearby event. The room was small, but quite clean. It included a microwave and mini-fridge. Good Internet service. Bathroom was tiny and the shower was dark. The baseboard heating worked well, which was important because it just had turned cold and I was feeling the sudden change. I've traveled extensively lately, and... More
