Very rundown, crazy happenings in the parking lot. Weird room in bad state of repair, one inconvenient lift and many stairs, scarey walkway that is unsafe, breakfast below average. Would recommend you pay a little more and go upmarket from this.

We didn't have a kitchenette but we had a fridge and a microwave, but we didn't use it, We used Uncle Billy's as a one night stay until we were able to enter our room at another hotel.
