First, there were three of us and they've put us in a very small room. We only got two large and a few smaller towels, so we had to go to reception and ask for more towels every day, and every day they said they were going to "leave a note" (whatever that meant) for cleaning staff so they leave...

I booked through booking.com. There was no choice for either smoking or non smoking rooms. When I arrived they only had smoking. After going in the room I could not take the smell of the smoke.

Slept well enough for 2nights. Hotel has exterior door access instead of hallway-the exterior door rooms are always a bit louder.

I was a little apprehensive because the spring break price was so inexpensive. However, the place was well cared-for. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Looked like a lot of effort has gone into improvements. We would definitely stay again.
