The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. However, I wouldn't consider that it offers the same value as others on my trip.
I had seen rooms on the internet the day before for $45+tax but when I arrived I was told the only room left was $55+tax and that the price difference was because it was a "different type" of room. This meant the total cost was more than $60. I could not see any difference between my room and the ones on the internet but there were signs in reception next day stating that the hotel was full. The Comfort Inn nearby would have been less expensive even with the extra fee for internet, but it was late and I did not know whether there were rooms there.
The price included "free internet" but it was very unreliable. The connection would only last for about 10 minutes before dropping out and it took up to an hour to get a connection again. I was disappointed that the internet was not really usable when I was paying quite a lot for the room.
There were also trains passing by (quite loudly) until at least 1:30am and the hotel is a little in the middle of nowhere with only a few fast-food restaurants nearby - perhaps I was not walking in the right direction. When I consider that I paid less for a hotel in San Francisco - in a good location with lots of restaurants and attractions nearby, and reliable internet - I question the value of this one.
