I live in this town and have always wondered about this place so after a fight with the hubby I decided to give it a try. I was offered a "luxury " room at $199 and said I didn't need anything like that so I was given a room in the "economy" (their words not mine) section at $169, the "economy" section is a converted motel w/ outside entrances to the rooms. Had a sofa, queen bed and freebies like a couple bottles of water and a sewing kit but the place is kinda run down. I went to take a shower in a run down bathroom that screams for updating w/ terrible shower head and the drain was soooooooo slow the water was to my knees by the time I was done and when I told them about it they said "oh okay" no apology-nothing. You also hear traffic but I guess you'd expect that because this is a major, major intersection. I travel a lot so at $169 I expect better, in my own back yard I really wanted more but now I know to send folks to the Marriott.
