Room was clean and spacious. No problem with noise from other rooms.
Room had a kitchen with full-size fridge, freezer with icemaker, full-size microwave, dishwasher, toaster, 2-burner range, and small coffeepot. Basic kitchen implements included a cutting board, pots with lids, cutlery, can opener, Rubbermaid containers, dishes, glasses, silverware, and more (and it all looked very clean). Also provided were a complimentary bag of microwave popcorn and bag of coffee.
There is free parking on site, with free overflow one block away. Free DVD movies are available at the front desk. Showerhead had three settings and very good pressure.
When I asked one of the front desk staff for directions to a local attraction, she gave me free tickets to another attraction on my list. Awesome!
Negatives: They didn't provide even a tiny bottle of hand lotion; ok, kind of a minor thing. I don't mind that they only provide housekeeping services once a week for linens and towels (and of course when a new guest comes to a room), but when I called down to ask what could be done about my trash can that was going to start smelling from discarded food, they told me to take it down the hall to the recycle/trash room; this, after being told earlier to "just let us know if you need anything". I've stayed in "suites" hotels before and never had to take my own trash out. Lastly, parking is pretty tight in the on-site lot.
Knowing these things, I still would not hesitate to stay here again. Other positives: Good location, easy to get to, and good price. Also felt safe (you have to use your room card to access the elevator, and I think they might even lock one of the entrances in the late evening).
