    Great location although noisy. I had wished there was a TV in private rooms with bathrooms.

    Overall a nice place that is centrally located. Had a single room with private bathroom. It served it’s purpose and was very affordable. But with that you don’t get things you otherwise normally would at another hotel. The room faced a street with a ton of bars that blasted music until 2am. The room was located on the second floor and you could hear every word of the loud conversations of people walking by.. drunk. Despite this I liked the property but would stress getting a room that was not facing the street in the future.

    I stayed on a Friday night, was very loud from outside. Make sure to bring earplugs if you’re a light sleeper. Atmosphere is friendly, although a front desk lady had a bit of attitude, like I’m supposed to know for the first time staying there where to leave the key and what paperwork does she need.
