I stayed at this hotel back in 1989 and I don't think there have been any upgrades since then. The bathroom was pretty bad with chipped paint, old tiled stained flooring, a running toilet that leaked every time it was flushed. The coffee pot in the room provided one cup with the packages with powdered creamer, undrinkable coffee. The black out drapes had so many holes on the other side that when the sun came through it was like a swiss cheese with how many holes. Unfortunately for the price I felt like we were staying at a 1 maybe 2 star hotel. Disappointing for sure.
