There were things that I liked about this hotel, and things I did not like. Might as well start with the good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was very clean, and included a lot of welcome extras: coffee-maker, refrigerator, microwave, ironing board, etc. There is free coffee and limited breakfast items in the lobby. The bed was comfortable. The air-conditioning worked fine. Now the bad. The carpet is really ugly, and my room was furnished with mismatched items. No closet, only a rod for hanging clothes. No bedspread on the bed, only a blanket. When I took a shower and reached for a towel, the towel rack fell off the wall. The TV was small (worked perfectly, though). These are really insignificant items, but there was one major drawback. In my room, at least, the walls must have been paper-thin. I could hear every time someone in the hall opened or closed a door. And I could hear every word of the conversation the people in the room across the hall were having. If I had not been so tired, it might have been difficult to fall asleep due to the noise. All in all, this isn't a bad hotel for the price. But if you are a light sleeper, you might want to look elsewhere.
