    Not bad for the price, but I wouldn't expect to be wowed here. The breakfast was slim picking, they ran out of towels, and hotel was always crowded.

    Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to give us a review. This really helps us improvise our weak areas. As for the hotel being crowded, due to full house of 80 rooms during STATE WRESLING TOURNAMENTS.
