Housekeeping didn't do a throughout job and left dirty rags in the room. Bed was stiff and thin pillows. Elevator was creaking so we avoided it. Other staff was pleasant. Easy parking. Too far of a walk to downtown area.

There was no staff at the front desk overnight (24 hour availability). There was no way to request a wake-up call if you arrived back at the hotel after 11 pm.

New yet a lot of wear and tear

The place was pretty decent, good walking distance to the shopping center and downtown. Natural wear and tear but not very touched up over time. Beds were very comfortable! Staff was pretty good with service.
