Price is great for the location, though one has to realize this means no breakfast, refrigerator, coffee machine, etc. that is found in other hotels. For my stay, I did not need those extras, so this was great!

The room has a very musty smell. The bathroom light has a fan attached and it becomes very annoying when just using the mirror or sink.
