The hotel had gotten nice reviews, so we didn't hesitate to make a reservation. However, the place is a bit run down. The walls needed paint pretty badly. The light fixtures in our room had dead bugs in them. When we turned down the sheets there was a hair on the pillowcase...not a good welcome. The woman at the front desk was gracious about it and came up to change the pillowcase while we were out. The mini fridge wasn't clean. The bathtub had some mold around it. I stay in hotels quite a bit, and I admit that I have high expectations on cleanliness. If you do, too, it's probably not the place for you. Bed was older and lumpy.
The breakfast was really disappointing, An assortment of somewhat stale cakes and breads with Nutella and some yogurts. The fruit had seen better days. It was pretty sad looking.
Also, check out time was at 10:30. Earlier than most hotels, just be aware of it. The staff was nice.
