This is an older hotel; clean and budget-friendly. There is a coffee maker in the room with terrible coffee. Downstairs there is a continental breakfast with much better coffee, two dry cereals, regular and cinnamon-raisin bread for toast and glazed doughnuts. The staff is friendly. There are no toiletries other than thin soap that broke easily but smelled good. Towels were great, thick and clean like new. Bathrooms are old and quite small but everything worked.
The hotel is facing the street and some traffic noise could be heard earlier in the night. The t.v. is small and old, but we did not care to watch it anyway. The beds were comfortable. The heater worked well and was very quiet. The pool looked nice but was closed for repairs when we were staying there. The room had a microwave and refrigerator.
