troop trip
Great location! Rooms were comfortable with just basic needs. Close enough to everything to make up for it! Front desk was very nice, helped us out when we had a shower issue by getting us another room to shower till ours was fixed.

Bar Fights in the Hallway
This is not a hotel for anyone over 40. “Shots” prices are advertised in the elevator. No TV in room. No telephone in room. Bed was a two story bunk bed with a bad mattress. A fight started in the hall outside our room and there was no immediate way to call the front desk to report it. I would never recommend this hotel or you as your employee recommended and booked this hotel without making it clear I was getting a private room in a hostel.

Good location
The room is clean, the bed is comfort, but not have bath mat which make wet floor after shower, we tried to ask from maids and reception but there's an extra charge. The toilet at the breakfast place is dirty.
