It is what it t
It was adequate, view was building next door. Elevator threshold was grimey. Please pay closer attention to details when cleaning.

One of the beds was made with a flat sheet instead of a fitted sheet and it didn’t even cover the end of the bed. Also the fan must not work very well in the bathroom as there was mold on the ceiling. It was one of the cheapest option for hotels for our trip.

This hotel is old and outdated. Not comfortable or relaxing either. Will not stay here again. Great location, but not worth the price.
