I picked this hotel due to its location since it is very centralized and close to everything. My visit was mainly business. The staff at front desk was nice and attentive. Our room was ready upon arrival. Asked for a non-smoking room, but seems like people still smoke in the rooms and the smell of cigarette just lingers. You could... More

I chose this hotel last minute because the price was right. The staff was pleasant and quick. I had a second floor room that clean and in pretty good shape. There was a cracked light cover in the vanity area, but that is an easy fix. The A/C worked well and the room was comfortable. I really appreciated the down... More

I read all the reviews when I picked this place. Score 4 of 5 for clean. (Some spots on the rug in room 241) Score 5 of 5 for friendliness of the staff. Score 2 of 5 for the breakfast. (I think they put out the same bagels all 3 days). I think the thing I didn't like most is... More
