    All of our rooms are non-smoking and some of our guest have smoked in the parking lot. There is WIFI throughout, the manager gives the password at the lobby upon check-in or dail 0 from your room phone for the office.

    Very tired room, too much furniture crammed in, stains on sheets and thread bare towels. Extremely low water pressure with fluctuating temperatures. Bed was OK. Strong WiFi signal. Lots of people hanging around outside. Will not stay here again.
