Excellent value in great location. Noisy ventilation system only drawback.

Good 6.0
A decent place to stay if you are healthy.
Parking is very limited with fewer spaces than there are rooms. The facility is clean and in good shape. I was having some medical/stomach issues and asked for a later checkout. The clerk gave us 30 minutes. There have to be other places to stay that are more customer friendly.

Noisy but nice
The tenants were noisy and various things kept us up in evenings and mornings. Sometimes people were yelling, sometimes playing techno music, talking right outside our window which is just slats, clearing throats etc, and it was hard to sleep at some points. It was a nice place and we loved the location, just not a fan of the noise issues.
