Location is great. Bed was comfortable. Friendly staff
Good bed, kind staff
Dust in the rooms and a little more clean bathrooms would be nice
The breakfast wasn't really anything to write home about, but the overall experience was great.
Front staff friendly. Bar probably would have been cool.
Everything felt slightly dirty/sticky and it was very cold. There was a shirt left under my bed and it was up to individuals to take their sheets down, so there's probably no cleaning beds in between guests.
