Computer printer was down, and the wonderful desk clerk found me accommodations so that I could print my boarding passes. He went way, WAY beyond being helpful. Very clean hotel, very nice staff. Nice experience.

The staff was super nice. The room was comfy, clean and easily accessible. Close to airport. Randy the "night guy" was so nice and helpful. Gave us a first floor room as we checked in at midnight. The woman that greeted me at the breakfast was nice and helpful.

The customer service was excellent! The room was an okay size and clean. The only thing I didn't like about our stay was the location (it was on a very busy street) but that is not a reflection on the hotel itself. Overall, a very good stay.

We were lucky one of us always had our ID or we would be screwed trying to get back into our room. The complimentary breakfast was ok. It was free so you cant really complain just do not expect...
