Not sure what head space you have to be in to consider this place "excellent" but it is not. The rating says 3 stars but this is not a 3 star hotel, it's a 2 at best, although it is average for ESA. (Are there ANY nice ESAs?) The place is a spruced up dump. The 1st floor room they gave me had a broken hot water faucet in the tub. The room was filled with steam and water was not just dripping but pouring out of the faucet. The front desk womon apologized and moved me to the 2nd floor. The room was OK...mind you I have low expectations for this chain of hotels. The kitchen was surprisingly very clean. It had a full oven, which is one of the reasons I picked this place since I do not use microwaves and it was clean. Sadly it spewed strong toxic oven cleaner odor when turned on but the windows are nice and big so it burned off and aired out after awhile. The bathroom was OK, but the shower curtain bottom was covered in mold. Thankfully I never stay anywhere without my shower shoes.Like most ESA the TV selection was limited, no FX, MSNBC, HIST, Spike, but they did have a DVD player. Nice flat screen I could connect my laptop to and a descent desk area. It was one of the better ESAs but they all are pretty lame. After a week or so people above me were getting obnoxiously loud. So I requested a different room. Front desk was willing but they told me no one was staying in the room above me. Once I moved the same noises began again, usually starting around 10 or 11PM. Shifty. This tells me the staff are letting people in afterhours to do whatever they do "off the books" Creepy. Would I stay here again? Hard to say, full kitchens with ovens are hard to find. If another place were available with similar amenities and just a bit more money, no. For a long term stay its hard not to save money and come here, just have low expectations.
