Ive stayed here a few times. Rooms were always clean. Staff were freindly and helpful. They have made renovations to hotel not bad for the money. The bar is a plus.

Okay, this hotel has a band and music on Friday and Saturday nights. You can hear the music ALL OVER the hotel in EVERY ROOM!!! Don't even think about getting sleep here unless its on a weekday. And then on week days, the walls are soooo paper thin that you hear every sound the person next door to you is making. I was next door to a guy who coughed up mucus all night...no kidding!!!! I had to go to Walgreen's to buy ear plugs. That was the ONLY way I could get any rest for my ENTIRE stay! Also, the maids don't mop the floors. My floor was so dirty and sticky. I wore white socks around my room one night and they were absolutely FILTHY within 1 hour of wearing them. Even if you are strapped for cash DON"T DO IT!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Save Yourselves!!!! Don't Come Here!!!!
