    Very Good8.0
    Our stay was just an over night, the hotel is starting to show its age. The room was clean and comfortable.

    Welcome Surprise
    The front desk staff couldn't have been nicer. The room was much nicer than I anticipated- clean and comfortable. The only problem was the heater but that was human error and weariness from travel. Once we figured it out we were fine. I have already recommended this hotel to friends. Will definitely be back.
