Booked a suite at the Holiday Inn Express. Room was on ground floor, unusual for a suite. Car park right outside my window, so the "view" was a car front grill. Cockroach in the bathroom, tub didn't work. Very uninteresting town, no alcohol but shooting innocent animals is ok. Wouldn't recommend a dirty noisy holiday inn or the town.
