Can get noisy but our room was changed to put space between us and a very annoyed baby. The door to the outside was left open and people were smoking. Didn’t like that. Made the hallways damp and lowered security. Other than that would go again.
The hotel must have been a Travelodge in the past, because the sign is still above the lobby. Rooms have two doors - one to an inside corridor and one to the outside. The lock was broken to the outside door - thankfully it could not be unlocked. The room had two beds, and we found a bug in one of the beds. When I reported this to the front desk, they said it must have blown in from outside - but it was crawling under the covers! After a sleepless night, imagining bugs crawling over me, at least the breakfast was good!
