    Not bad if you’re not picky

    A refreshed old hotel. Looks like it’s had renovations but nothing spectacular. It’s ok if you’re not looking for something fancy

  • 6.0.Good

    Don’t stay here!

    When we arrived the lobby looked very nice and welcoming. There was nobody behind the counter so we had to ring a bell for service. We checked into a King suite with a hide a bed. Our room was located on the 2nd floor. We entered the 2nd floor and there was a “weird” smell throughout the hallway. When we entered our room the odor was stronger but once we cranked the AC down it was less. In rhe bathroom there was obvious pieces of dirt on the floor and it was poorly painted and had probably had a 6’5” high ceiling. The toilet would not flush either. The room itself had a decent king sized bed, and a FILTHY pullout sofa. There was no bedding for the hide a bed. We called down to get some and waited 30 minutes and it never arrived so we walked down to the front desk and were given the bedding and some old blue blanket. Had to move numerous pieces of furniture just to open the hide a bed. Slept ok, but would not stay here again. It received high ratings on Hotels.com, not sure how? Avoid this place!!!!
