Actual physical hotel was NOT as pictured on the website; much more run-down. Room itself appeared somewhat clean but was tainted by musty, heavy humidity. A few tiles were broken in the bathroom as well as the toilet seat hinge broken off. The front desk person was trying to be helpful and offered a "ionizer air cleaner" machine to help with musty/mold air quality but it was very old looking and the intake fan area was coated in dust. YUCK! to the whole place. Feel "hood-winked" regarding booking this hotel with inaccurate information.

They were fine to begin with. Then they realized we had 4 people, which I had booked the room for 4. They said when we checked out that there would be an extra charge for the extra people and we're going to charge us for the room, which is already paid for. There were bugs in the room. Which they offered another room, but figured if they were in 1 room they would be in the others. There wasn't any extra toliet paper and only 3 towels which were very thin.

Not so Good

Pros: Free Internet
The Room was just old and kind of shabby. Not very clean. Not a great place to stay. The Staff was very nice!

Highly recommended

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
I used the internet to research which hotel to stay at. I spent a lot of time trying to decide which hotel to pick. I was very happy that I chose this place. It is well-run and clean and the morning breakfast was really nice. I could not find anything to complain about.
