The free breakfast was excellent, and the restaurant the night before was extremely accommodating for dinner when we didn't have a reservation. The restaurant staff and the food were excellent.
The room was poorly decorated in 1950's decor with a very unpleasant musty odor. Only 5 tv channels, The heat did not work. The temperature never got above 60 degrees all night long. Not worth the price we paid.
