    I was really happy to see such an older property very well maintained and clean. The room were very nice and updated. Just wish the Hotel would have had breakfast in the lobby. But if I am ever in town again, I would stay there.

    The noisy bar next door till 10pm. I could here the Bass of the drums over the tv and I could not relax while this was going on. Would have been better to have a room on other side of Hotel away from the bar/night club.

    I really enjoyed that there was makeup wipes, smelled fresh in the room, super clean, heater worked well, also there was body wash, shampoo, conditioner, coffee machine, fridge, microwave. Basically came with a lot of stuff in case you had food or forgot something.

    The shower head was weak and it was weird trying to figure out how to turn on the shower. Tv turns off every hour and walls are thin so you can hear the neighbors headboard banging against the wall or if they have dogs you can hear them bark.
