After reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to stay here on our way to New England. Overall for the price, I would say it's good for a one night stay.
Raj is very nice and was the only one working the front desk. Our first room had an issue with a stopped up toilet. I asked for a plunger. An older man dropped one off and told us just to leave it in the room. When the plunger didn't do the trick, Raj moved us to a room a couples of doors down, with his apologies.
The rooms are older as is the building. But there is free WiFi which many pricier hotels make you pay extra for. The speed was pretty good, however the next morning the cable was out so no WiFi.
The rooms were nice and comfortable when it came to temperature. There is a small microwave and refrigerator in the room. Since it was winter, facing the pool was great. There was no outside noise.
For you tall people, the shower head in the shower is higher than many hotels so no ducking to shower. And it takes no time for the water to get hot.
That being said, it's a basic hotel. I would not want to stay multiple days, but it's good for one night.
