This hotel is well located with restaurants and limited shopping one or two blocks away. The hotel is set up for tour groups, but can serve for individual travelers who do not need much more than a base of operations. The rooms are clean with tile floors but otherwise desperately in need of upgrade! The staff is accommodating and helpful.... More

The staff are very helpful and the location is excellent. The rooms however are not like the ones in the photos, the pillows are lumpy and need to be changed, the room was shabby for a 4 star as advertised, and worst of all, there was NO HOT WATER.
