Not for family or business
I stayed at the Feeehand for 4 nights on a business trip. The room is the size of a small house bedroom. Not good for business. Only 2 hangers in my tiny closet. When I asked for more I was told they would have to check...I got no more. There is no drawer to put my clothes. They have a shared kitchen for food and drinks. I'm expected to leave food there. 2 other guests told me it would be stolen. Looks like a motel.

Outlets in room didn’t work. Housekeeping didn’t come one day. Tiny rooms. No light in rooms because there’s one small window that goes out to a parking lot.

Great! ... but ran out of hot water???
Great overall experience, fantastic value on the room. Only real complaint is that they ran out of hot water during our stay... this is unacceptable for a hotel of any kind!
