        I liked the staff, they were very nice and helpful and wanted to help. Free breakfast was nice too.

        I hated the location- it was loud inside and outside every night. People would use the mic when they were drunk and everyone would be very rude at night with considering bed times (even after 12am it was loud). Our biggest regret was buying a shuttle to the airport that never showed and when we called about it, the shuttle service said they didn't know about our location and we almost missed our flight. We were told this was a very reliable service and we were left outside for almost an hour. The location though was the worst. I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay in the area because it's scary even going out alone.
