Nice staff but overall unclean place. Hard time controlling water temperature and few showers were not updated and old. Fully equiped kitchen. My room was unclean. Stained sheets and found used condom on chair.

Nice and clean with comfy beds
We were not here very long. We did not arrive until midnight and there was a note on the door letting us know where our room was. The rooms were clean and looked a bit like a college dorm room. The beds were comfy and it was not noisy for as many cars that were in the parking lot.
