10.0 Excellent
Pros:It was some what new.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Great and helpful staff, gave me a map and suggested cool things to see in the city. Great atmosphere, everyone staying here is friendly.
Cons:Only 1 outlet (2 plugs) in a room for 6 people. AND the outlet is on a 30 minute timer so forget about charging your phone at night while you sleep. I'm all for conserving electricity, but this is excessive.
