Front desk was helpful and pleasant! The room itself could use updating! Especially the bathroom! Tub was stained, there was hair in the sink from shaving left from previous customer, and other sink was stained! Needless to say…I didn’t shower! It was just a one night stay.

6/10 Good

Staff was good to work with and quickly responded to any need. The room was old, sink was cracking, shower faucet didn’t work and fireplace in room would start and when they fixed it, it wouldn’t turn off. The room wasn’t dirty per day, but was old dirt from years of ware and tare. If you stay there, request an updated room. Great location as well.
