Choose another hotel!!!
Great location, cheap price, comfortable bed, but definitely would pay the extra money to stay somewhere a little nicer next time we're in town. Our "non-smoking" room wreaked of cigarette smoke, was very run down, and dirty. Breakfast was basically cereal, muffins and bagels. No hot food or many healthy options. The blanket on the bed had holes from what appears to be burns. The sheet had stains on it. There was a long black hair hanging from the light switch. A large hole on the side of the desk chair. Warped linoleum floor in the bathroom. Burn marks on bathtub which was very small. Dead bugs on the floor. I wouldn't have even stayed, but my husband didn't want to change hotels after driving all day. Friendly staff, but not very professional. Parking fee $5 per day.

DO NOT stay at this hotel. My fiance came back to his room, the room key would not work. Got that issue corrected and went in to find his luggage was rifled through and $700 was stolen out of his pants pocket that was buried at the bottom of his suitcase. The hotel management is not doing anything about it. NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL. THE ONLY ONES WHO HAD ACCESS TO THE ROOM WERE THE EMPLOYEES!!!
