It has a great location and price, which is why we had taken a chance on it. :) They just finished a complete renovation of the hotel a few days ago, and urged us to please comment online after our experience here. We dropped off our bags and rested for a few minutes, and then decided it was time for dinner. For those of you who have been enjoying our fancy dinner nights, prepare to be disappointed. ...
