If you like thin spring mattresses that’s for you
One of the worst sleeps I had in my life time. Those Mattresses are like a youth hotel thin spring mattresses where you able to feel the spring in all parts of the body. The stuff try to be helpful and switch the room, however same condition on the other room. The Hotel is clean and for this town the best.

Bad beds and laundry service
The beds are very firm, so keep that in mind if you prefer softer beds. It prevented me from getting good sleep. Their laundry service was a day late in returning my clothes and I received no discount or even an apology. If that was my last day at the hotel I would have lost my clothing.
