Upon check in, we were greeted graciously by Kelly Forest. He was very personable which we appreciated as we were checking in late in the evening. We appreciated that snacks were made available to us.

We arrived later than check in time and the room was not ready. We noticed that multiple groups of people experienced the same thing. When we get to room, it was a lot smaller than the pictures online depict. The toilet was extremely low to the floor which is rough for anyone with knee problems. There is a full length mirror in the inside of the bathroom door, very weird placement when considering the toilet is facing the mirror. The bathroom is also extremely small. In addition, when coming back from our walk we come to find the cleaning crew cleaned our room but left our door open. This of course freaked us out. When we called the front desk, we were told that the cleaning crew came by an hour and half prior which means our room was left open that long. Read less

Front desk and valet parking person was wonderful, the room reminds me of the old hotel/motel. The beds seemed old but were comfortable, the bathroom also looked old. The location was good for walking to eat and entertainment in the city.
