It was a football weekend and everything was sold out. We stayed at this hotel one night. That was plenty. Rooms reminded me of long term stay hotels. Everything was old and outdated. I do appreciate it was a place to put our head down at night.

It was clean, quiet, safe, and had a microwave and fridge in the room. Continental breakfast includes basic cereal, toast, bagel and also could make your own waffle. The rooms are internal with a hallway. Right on I 35, frontage road....but could not hear traffic.

The security lock was missing and the...
