This place was nasty! Mold all over room and ceiling, rude person at check in, and they even charged me after I had already paid Travelocity! Had to chase them to prove I stayed there as they told Travelocity I never showed. Jerks! I even need a new alignment on my car as their parking lot sucks too! Stay anywhere else - not here!
