Very basic, but all that was needed for a short overnight stay. The bathroom was a step up and a little inconvenient.

The room was well appointed and comfortable for a short stay however a simple thing like semi-decent pillows would have made a huge difference. There was also water damage to the inside of the bathroom door from the water pooling when you have a shower.

The room wasn’t the cleanest had to clean the top and front of fridge door was pretty dirty. The bed head had dirty finger prints all over it. Had to wipe that down. Only had one pillow. Was woken up by a guy who was drunk banging at his door and yelling due to not being able to get into his room, that went on for 45mins or more. Was pretty scary waking up to that racket at 4;00am. Decided to leave at 5am to having to walk over the drunk guy who was asleep across the walk way. Not acceptable.
