This has to be one of the best value hotels in the area, however there's a single thing that killed my stay there. There was a LOUD thumping noise going on 24/7, it sounded like the bathroom doors were being slammed at regular periods (but they weren't bathroom doors). Never figured what it was but it was very displeasing noise specially at night.
