Pricey for what they offered.
The hotel staff were amazing. Super kind and sweet. The room we stayed in was nice but when walking in it had a mildew or moldy smell which was worse in the morning. We were also on the top floor in a very hot day and the hallway was very hot. Not a huge deal because they had ac units but it couldn't keep up due to the heat. This is an older hotel that they updated most of but not all of it. The elevator is extremely outdated with no air flow. The door to get into the room was rubbing so you had to double check to see if it shut and had to pull or push it for it to lock in place. For the cost itself I'm not sure I'd stay again due to all of this. I'd probably try a different hotel. It wasn't terrible but was what I expected for the cost.

Disappointing room, but good service
The staff was excellent! The rooms were quite gross. Everything felt as if it were damp - from the sheets to the floors - and it smelled like mildew. Giant spider in the tub.
