Hotel is updated older property. Owner on property for check-in. Owner very friendly and helpful. Property is on very busy road and sirens all night which made sleeping difficult. Pool is nice. Close to many restaurants and bars

If you don't tell me it's still lying
There was no breakfast as promised just 10% off at Denny's across the street. The neighborhood was a little sketchy with homeless people fighting all around the complex and late night street racing in front of the hotel on a Thursday.
