People at the front desk were always great & helpful. The only thing I didn't like was I stayed for 4 nights & housekeeping never came to clean the room. I wish there would have been a mini fridge & microwave but I knew they didn't have that before booking. But everything else was nice for the price.

The guy in night shift was so friendly and very willing to help us with any kinds of question. The zoom was a little bit small but the service was awesome. The coffee machine was great, too. I highly recommend this place. :)
