Mediocre Accommodation
Location was great! Near a parking garage for anyone driving. The check in was a little slow and lacking in friendliness. The room looked nothing like the pictures online. Small but got the job done. Bathroom sink was clogged and backing up every time we used it and the bathroom door handle fell off. Breakfast area was nice but overpriced. Overall, not worth the price tag.
