Pros: This hotel is dog friendly centrally located. The rooms are standard for a two star hotel, so I wasn't surprised or disappointed in that sense.
Cons: For me this place was hands down an unfortunate experience. First, they shouldn't advertise "free internet" because it doesn't reach all rooms. I wasn't able to get a connection ALL night. The work I needed to complete was on my Ipad and it doesn't have wifi, so that was a total bust. It also would have been nice if the clerk had told me the office would be closed at night. It was unfortunate that I locked myself out of my room at this place. Without a cell phone the only thing I could do is walk down to the corner store and beg to use their phone. The number listed was for a HJ in Hadley. There wasn't anyone free to come help me out, but Jamal offered to send a cab and put me up in their hotel for the night. Thanks Jamal!! Out of desperation (my dog's food and all my money was in my hotel) I scaled the wall and broke into my room. Yes, it was crazy easy to break into my own hotel room. Good news if you're a dumbass and lock yourself out, bad news if you don't want to get robbed or worse. This place is a two star hotel, so I wasn't expecting anything special.
Pros: Location and nice staff
Cons: Room wasn’t very clean
