10/10 Exceptional

Great value. The room was very clean, even if the decor was dated. To have a complete kitchen/living room, as well as a separate bedroom with bath for the price was incredible. The staff was very friendly at check-in.

very thin walls, the next door room made noise late into the night and early morning. It was some tye of contractor who had some long term arrangement. Many other rooms appeared to be available since no cars were in the lot yet we were assigned the room next to these people.
