Great Location
Great Location. Close to a grocery store and restaurants and public transportation. Comfortable bed. Only complaints are no AC, and wifi requires a code and expires every hour. They give you two free wifi passes each day. However, they need to just give 24 hour free wifi to every guest for free. It was a pain. Otherwise, staff was helpful. The windows do not open very far letting little fresh air in and no AC. Might be really hot in the summers.

The hotel is right downtown so the location is great. The staff were very helpful. It's just that the place is a tad old and basic. No problems - just don't expect too much.
