Good points: staff were young and smart. Good location. Bad: The hotel: one slow elevator. The halls smelled of macaroni cheese. The room: where to start? The door lock was loose and rattled in its fitting. The door itself was old and worn and didn't close properly. The keycard unlocked the door only one in every three attempts. The carpet... More

Stayed one night on a road trip. The hotel is clean and the rooms are nice. The hotel staff was friendly upon arrival. My only complaint was the mattress. It left a little to be desired. Except for that, this was a very nice hotel.
