10.0 Wonderful
Outstanding! Comfortable, safe and friendly staff.
10.0 Wonderful
We got a pretty decent deal (around $100/night). You could tell the hotel was old (bad water pressure, slow drains, etc) but it was keep up really well. If the room ran around the regular price I've seen of $200-250/night, it wouldn't be as good of a value. Just a heads up, the majority of the guests are snobby douchbags.
