    Updated everything .nice location

    The "urban fee " is ridiculous! $15 per night.its a scam to make them look cheaper then the other hotels.room is definatly small but updated and pool and workout room is still closed.they want 75 to park..garage directly behind them is $35. Also I was literaly trapped in elevator because I didnt have my room card but I was in elevator before I realized that and it closed the door and as I looked it shut down .the lights turned of and panel was nonresponsive so I used the emergancy speaker thing and they were a off site answering service!!!!!! I survived.lol but what a irdeal....overal.clean updated and good locale .dump the fee figure the elevator issue out park behind and itll be a great place...
