          Clean, comfortable, safe, quiet. Breakfast was cold cereal, toaster waffles, milk and coffee. Satisfactory for when budget is a priority. Badly in need of some renovating.... Which they are doing. The bathroom and bed linens were spotless. Stayed for $50 on hotels.com

          We do not have a laundry facility on site, but there is a local laundry mat called the Lost Sock, that is only 0.4 miles away.
