"Would not reccomend."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We were visiting friends nearby so the location was good for us and the price was cheap. The room was clean,but they sprayed some kind of deodorizer to cover the smoke smell, so there really aren't "non smoking" rooms. TV kept shutting itself off and bulbs were so low watt you could barely see around the room. The only good thing I can say is our room was clean. I also would not recommend hotel planner as I tried to call them to get some information on room and they never returned my calls. All in all I cannot recommend this place or the booking agency.
