I liked this property because it is clean, well kept, modern and has a friendly staff. Granite vanities and shower enclosures, nothing fancy but solid. It had small fridge, comfortable beds, good free hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, pancakes, etc.) in self serve mode. Weight room had some decent aerobic equipment but a poor old rusty multipurpose weight machine that should be retired. The staff, especially front desk was very helpful and friendly. I would have given 5 stars for service had the staff responded to my request to lower the workout room temp from 75 degrees (locked thermostat) which was warmer than the lobby, to 68 degrees. It was an uncomfortable workout and no fans. Plus three day here and no one has restocked the exercise room with towels. We were here with a soccer team for a tournament and the one washer/dryer on the premises got a real workout! I would have given the sleep quality 5 stars if the pillows had been as good as the beds (if you are someone who brings their own pillow, do so) although they give a nice 4 pillows per bed. Overall I give this property high marks and would return.
