Caution! The street level window in the first floor (half underground) room I was given didn't CLOSE entirely or LOCK! This room was on the backside of the hotel which is very poorly lit and a little scary due to the adjacent parking lot with dozens of overnighting semi trucks. The room had only one light with a 40 watt bulb. I went right back to the front desk and the clerk was nowhere to be found- just a sign saying she'd be right back. After 15 minutes she returned and was blasé about my comments and gave me a partially remodeled room on the third floor. It was passable but the entire floor had a strong odor of cigarette smoke, and diesel fuel as the windows on each end of the hallway were open. Also the back door was unlocked. I travel often and I wasn't expecting five star accommodations but safety is an issue that should be taken seriously and it is not even an afterthought at this property.
