    Different than expected

    I guess we were not expecting it to be motel style with exterior doors, so it was very noisy. Room had been redone and was in good shape. Staff were very friendly. Wifi signal was weak. Also we had thought our breakfast was included and were shocked at how expensive it was (considering where we were). Overall would be fine for quick one night stop over.
