I've stayed at better 3⭐ hotels for way less money. Nothing fancy here, the room had a horrible moldy smell, and hallways were old and in need of carpet cleaning. Parking was 24.50 a night.

The property was clean looking. The pool was excellent. The shower was clean, there were missed items left in the fridge.

The hotel itself and staff were great. However to actually park at the hotel cost $23 additional to the hotel fee. Had i know this prior to booking, I would have selecteda different hotel.

Property itself is nice. In a very busy area. Lots of noise. Needs to have some type of sound barriers from cars trucks as well as internally
