4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

This property has recently had its lobby, restaurant and market all redone and it looks and feels absolutely wonderful. The rooms have seen their glory from another era. Still in good condition, but not a knockout, yet.... like its counterpart of the first floor. I'm sure it will catch up soon. Great location, the staff is super friendly and helpful!
