Nice Hotel Staff in a Crazy Neighborhood
People screaming obscenities in the parking lot, a stranger was harassing me in the parking lot, there was shooting outside the hotel and the towels looked dingy. The manager and staff were accommodating, professional and kind.

Good value. Owners friendly. However, bottom floors hear virtually every step from rooms above. Best to book on second floor to avoid this problem.

Had high hopes for the location close by another activity. Was disappointing: office not open during part of the day. Keycard never seemed to work more than once if at all.
