    Awful Experience
    To start with the room they gave me was out of service it was their mistake they gave me the keys to room 232 . Everytime I had to open my room I had to call them because the keys would not work. I stayed from Friday to Sunday. On saturday our lights went out and again I went to speak with someone at reception this was on Sunday morning around 1-2 am. I wanted to speak with someone since I was tired of having to call everytime to open our door and now we didnt had electricity. I get there the person at the front was extremely rude . She didnt believe I was staying at room 232 and even called the room she told me " let me call the room so you can see no one is going to answer" and guess what my friend who I was staying with answer. I asked her to please speak with her manager I let her know about everything that I had to go through , and I asked her to please check me out because the service and attention they were given to us was AWFUL. I tought I was going to have a good stay but I didn't . They ended up giving us another room but honestly I would've appreciated if they had returned my money and the bad time I experienced.

    Beware! Bad hotel!
    Very bad service from the staff. The rooms are very outdated. Customer service was at its worst. Do not recommend to anyone. You can find better and cheaper options.

    Amazing for the price.
    The service was great. Everyone was super friendly. There were even little chocolates on the bed when I arrived! The room was recently remodeled and for the price, it is definitely unbeatable. Stay here and support local!
