2/10 Poor

The pictures are better than the reality of this property. The hotel is very stale. Hasn’t been updated in decades. I found it dry. It has huge potential…the location is great but besides that very disappointed. The complimentary breakfast is pathetic at best. Would recommend you stay somewhere else.
