Very good 8.0
met my needs
first time staying there after the renovation. I was in town for a classmate's funeral. continental breakfast was good, no computer to check email but I was in town for just one day. All I really needed was a place to sleep, and it served the purpose. It was mostly quiet so no complaints about my stay.
