Good 7.2 From 26 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not even with a good deal.
Ok for a very quick Overnight stay. The sheets and towels were clean but that is about it. The hostess did let me check in 30 mins early which was nice- but made a point about how it’s against the rules. My child lost a toy behind/underneath the bed and it is definitely noticeable that they don’t clean everywhere, just the obvious spots. Beds are VERY uncomfortable, pillows were ok but recommend bringing your own. It is a very, very dated place that seems to have the bare minimum upkept to it. I wouldn’t stay here again to be honest, not even with a good deal. We had two adults and one toddler.
