          Very affordable, nice helpful staff and great location. You definitely get what you pay for so don’t expect a five star room here. The mattress was inexplicably uncomfortable. The room was cooled by a pedestal fan bolted to the wall which coupled with the high humidity made the room nearly unbearable. ...
