Awesome place, super cool staff, comfy if worn bed, only not perfect bits were a pretty confident mouse that was a pretty chill companion in the room and that the pillow had a bit of a hint of urine smell.

Jen, I apologize deeply for the mouse issue, we do our best to keep them out by hiring an outside service. I am so sorry one may have gotten into you room. I hope you let our staff know about your pillow - we have plenty extra we could have replaced it with. All that said, thank you for the positive review! Please come see us again soon.
