Latest Review

" I stayed in a lovely private room, very comfortable bed and sheets and pillows, otherwise basic but nice. Very clean! I didn't have any problem with traffic noise like some of the other reviews mentioned, and I didn't wake up super early. The breakfast is convenient and standard; you can probably find a little more variety around town but I was happy to eat there every morning. My only complaint is that the wifi kept having issues when I was there, but they did keep trying to fix it. "
