This hotel should be listed as a trainer. Nothing in the hotel is above average. Everything is standard. Check in staff, housekeeping, room size and design. The good: it is just off the freeway, restaurants are nearby, check in is simple, housekeeping staff are helpful. The bad: walls are thin. Hallway noise can be disturbing. Flat screen TV, but not in high def. Bathroom fan is loud. Bed is not firm, it is hard. The ugly: breakfast is subpar. Hot food is bland. You are better served with having continental style breakfast here or eat off site. Discounts aren't offered, by the staff you have to ask.
Although there is room for improvement, it isn't a bad place to stay. Because most things here are average it should be used as a training site for hospitality students. A few upgrades in what is offered would warrant a better grade. Don't expect much here because you won't get much. I would stay here again but in a suite.
