This is our second stay at this property and will probably be our last. They are doing sone remodeling but rooms are musty and smelly. I had to go buy air freshener just to stay overnight. Woke up with a terrible headache that their $6 coffee couldn’t cure. Hopefully the newly remodeled rooms will be better but I wouldn’t recommend until the property is completely redone.

Staff was helpful and friendly. The room was musty. They have designed it to be fun and a bit eclectic, but it’s old at its core.
