I used my Priority Rewards and stayed here for 2 nights. Front desk staff were very friendly and as a Priority Rewards member I got a free snack. The room wasn't that big but it was clean and we had more than enough space to fit and open our luggage. I could only find 1 free power outlet (coming out of the lamp at the desk). I wanted one near the bed, and there was a power cable near the bed but it was filled with other plugs so I had to unplug a few to charge our electronic devices. No biggie for us but if you have a billion things to charge up, good luck.
Bathroom was clean and we had enough towels. First thing I noticed was the layout - the sink is situated on the outside of the toilet/tub (which is fine), but if you're not careful coming out of the bathroom you can clock someone with the door if they're using the sink! We almost did this a few times. I'm not sure if all the rooms are like this but be careful if yours is! Bathroom feels a tad cramped and the shower pressure wasn't great, but the complimentary toiletries were great! Bed was firm and we had enough pillows for a decent night's sleep.
Wireless internet was a breeze to connect to (you get instructions on how to connect), and it was never flaky. I saw a network cable to connect to on the desk but didn't use it. Mini fridge came in handy to keep our drinks cool. Free newspaper in the morning too which was a nice touch.
Last weird thing is the elevator - we found out it stops in between the 3rd and 4th floor (we were on the 4th) and it was actually faster to carry our luggage up/down the half set of stairs to/from the front desk (which seems to be on the 3rd floor). We were only about 10min drive away from downtown, and we spotted some fast food joints (McD's, Timmies) very close by.
