Great Deal
Only problem involved WiFi. Very spotty. Could only make emergency calls from phone. Three different WiFis were available and none were reliable.

Peaceful Stay!
The room was spacious, however the room fixtures were older. Although, some renovation has been completed, more need to be done. With that being said, the room was clean and it was a quiet weekend. I would stay here again.
