We stayed here for a few nights for a dog show. The hotel has great and easy parking, looked nice and was well kept on the outside. The inside lobby was nice and the staff was friendly...Our check in was very fast and efficient. The staff at check in was very friendly. Our room was adequate...The bedroom/tv/desk sitting area was very spacious. But the bathroom "area" was a pain especially if there is more than 1 person trying to accommodate the space at the same time. The sink was not in the "bathroom" but was outside it and directly across from the closet and area where you put your suitcase...The space between the sink and that area is big enough to accommodate one person. Because the sink is squeezed in that space there is no counter space to put anything...Not even your toothbrush and toothpaste. The toilet and bath/shower are in a very spacious bathroom...there is no reason they could not put the sink in the bathroom with an adequate countertop. So if my husband was at the sink brushing his teeth or trying to brush his hair at the sink and i needed to get into the bathroom or to the closet to get something out of my suitcase, it was a shuffling game. We found it a real pain. if it was just me in the room, no problem (except the no counter space issue), but 2 people trying to get ready at the same time made it trying. Aside from this, the bathroom is clean, the room itself is clean. There is a refrigerator, and the room is nicely furnished...the bed is only adequate. It was extremely firm. I dont like soft mattresses per say, but it really hurt my ribs or hips which made it so i was tossing and turning a lot. if you are traveling with a dog, there is great walking/potty space for them. The breakfast in the morning was in a nice area, and was better than many places that include breakfast. The value was only ok...frankly I would have given it a higher rating if i didn't pay what i did. For what it was, they shouldn't be charging what they were. I would stay there again in a pinch, but i will not stay there again next year when we go to that show. There are 3 other hotels literally within the same block and i will try one of those next year.
