My primary complaints with this hotel is the small vanity. Really not enough space at all for toiletries and makup case, etc. My other issue is that I was given a room in an adjacent building, which is ok but for the need to lug your luggage across the parking lot and go through secure entering etc. Also, the breakfast is served in the other building, so you must bundle up exit the building go across the parking lot, and do the same to return. Not at all convenient if you like to gather your breakfast and bring it back to the room to eat while you work, as I prefer to do. Otherwise clean, friendly desk person, and fine for an overnight. The area is desolate at night, smack in the middle of the state government area. There is also a college across the street but I expected it to be busier, but it must be mostly commuters that attend there. Dining is some distance, with a mall about 2 or 3 miles away (Uno - ok) unless you go to downtown. Driving around here though is annoying. Light cycles seem to take forever. Next time I visit the area I think I'll stay on the outskirts of the city.
