4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stayed here for two nights, and I have been pleased with everything. This was one of the cheapest hotels I can find in the city, and also accepting pets. I love the hotel's pet fee policy. I have 2 small dogs, and the hotel only charges $10. Its policy at this time is $10 per stay, doesn't matter whether you have 1, or more pets. I'm sure there's a limit on how many pets you can bring, but this is the best pet fee I've seen anywhere, ever. The continental breakfast ran from 6:30am - 10am, which was a decent amount of time for everyone to get up. The breakfast had a really good selection, including milk, cereal, hot beverages, juice, muffins, two kinds of croissants, waffles, fruits, eggs, bagels, and more. The room itself is good for a thrifty hotel chain. The AC was really loud and turned on automatically to adjust to the room temperature. The room also had a microwave and mini fridge. The bathroom was nice, including toiletries, shoe shine cloth, make-up remover wipes, and the towels are nice, big and fluffy. There were a couple of stains on the carpet, and both chairs in the room are stained. The pillows were really lumpy, and I can't say I had a great night of sleep the first night. The TV display was not very clear, but it was large enough size to be seen from anywhere in the room. The wi-fi was pretty much useless the first night we were here. The front desk said it was because there were too many people using it at the same time. I didn't believe her, but lo and behold, it cleared up around midnight and everything was running swiftly. The location was fine for me, as I had a vehicle and could easily access anywhere in the city. I didn't get a chance to check out what was in the area.
