Nice hotel, clean and friendly. Small Gym. Room was very nice. I like to get suites so that I have somewhere to work and for under $100 it was a deal. Good breakfast for a hotel. WI-Fi was not great which was s shame. Walls were a little thin.

This is one of those hotels that you can tell has been renovated, but you can also tell it used to be shabby. Our room had a drop ceiling and weird ventilation. The staff goes out of its way to be friendly.
