    Sorry but the buildings, stairways and halls were very dirty. No effort has been made to fix broken workworn furnishings. Could be nice with work and cleaning.

    Good location, helpful staff, clean, big TV.

    Breakfast is minimal continental but Dinah’s is just across the street for an excellent meal. Hard to find plugs for devices. Bathtub surface needs repair.

    Price for location. It's a very tired hotel that could use upgrading, but it met our purposes and the managers seem to be doing the best they can with what they've got to work with. The room was clean - to the extent that it could be.

    Wifi was virtually unusable. The rooms and bathrooms need to be updated. The card reader on or door was problematic; we had to have at least a half dozen card keys made before we got 2 that worked.
