Positives: Breakfast was very small and limited but I was happy they had decaf coffee. The bed was a little springy but still comfy. Pillows were decent.
Negatives: The room was very small. It did not have a full length mirror. I did a lot of shopping and like to try on my clothes in the room in front of a full length mirror. The main areas were basically clean, but the bathroom door was dirty on both sides. One side had a dried glob of toothpaste, the other side had an unknown glob of something that hadn't been wiped off. I think the area of town is kind of bad. It appeared that some of the people there were living there. Kind of a sketchy crowd. I felt safe with my spouse, but had I travelled alone, I would not have felt safe there.
Very small dated rooms in...
