My wife uses oxygen due to a heart problem, and the hotel didn't have an elevator. The staff made no effort to move us to a 1st floor room. The AC "cooled" the room to 80 degrees. The fridge was unplugged and had old food in it; the smell was terrible. Stay somewhere else.
We mistakenly left expensive medication in the refrigerator, and were disappointed that the hotel staff threw it away without contacting us.
Cheap - there were used towels in the room when we arrived, and the sink had whiskers in it; the front desk clerk had to clean the sink and bring clean towels - breakfast was good.
A block from a restaurant - room was small, but newly remodeled and tasteful - pleasant, helpful staff - terrific continental breakfast with hard-boiled eggs and Belgian waffles.
