As usual, I did a bit of searching before I booked this hotel. Booking online was a no-brainer. I got a great rate plus the location was very close to where I needed to be. What else can I ask for?
The staff was great. No problems checkin in, out or with the maid service at all. The only thing that was lacking was the continental breakfast. I have been spoiled by some other places and was disappointed that this place only had pastries and juice. I can't blame the hotel on this point, as I am pretty sure anyone would assume continental means danish. So, eating out once for breakfast was fine. No big deal.
The parking lot is kind of small but I was always able to park right outside the room, no matter what time I came back. I never saw it full or ever heard anyone complain that they couldn't find a spot.
The room was kind of small but the pictures on the website does show it exactly as it is. I thought it was just the angle of the photo but that was my mistake. Again, I cannot fault the hotel for this. There were two beds in the room but mine was right up against the window. Literally, if the window was open, someone could reach in and touch me. Kind of freaked me out but really, there were no problems with the area or other guests. I didn't even hear anybody else in the hotel and we were on the ground floor. If there was anyone above us, they were as quiet as mice.
The room air conditioner was too high to reach but there is a remote for it. Found it after much strain trying to turn it on. Oops, my bad! The bathroom was clean and quiet. The tv worked and there were many channels to choose from. The room even had a microwave and fridge but lacked a coffee maker. Again, no problem for me as the coffee makers are usually to small anyhow and I always find a Starbucks for that addiction.
The only complaint I have about the room was the door. It looked like it didn't shut and I ended up putting a chair under the handle. I know I'm probably paranoid but you can never be too sure these days.
Going into this, I knew this was not going to be a luxury hotel. That being said, I am not putting this hotel down at all. It was within my budget and had all the amenities I asked for. It was located in a safe area, within walking distance for food (which I did walk to at night) or other basic needs. If you drove a few minutes, you were within the shopping centers and the theater (I also went to the movies on this trip). The staff was terrific and housekeeping always did an excellent job. Believ it or not, I would stay here again and I would recommend this hotel.
