The staff here is nice and friendly. The hotel is clean and inexpensive. The only problem is the noise insulation if you have a loud neighbor. Keyed entry inside. It is worth what you pay. Good for people on a budget. The room is pretty basic, but does have a small kithenette with a two burner stove and a FULL size fridge. Plenty of cabinets also. Mostly out of town contractors, military, and budget travelers. I would recommend this place.

Room Tip: Top floor! No footsteps above you!

It was perfect for us and our lifestyle and budget!! It really made us feel safe and secure with their set-up. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to see and do and it was well within our "vacation budget". It made it easy to our vacation without the hassle of extra cost or expense of eating out too. We had our meals right in our room and never had to scramble around searching for a place to eat after a hectic day of sightseeing.
Thanks to Value Place for such a great place to stay!!!

Room Tip: book ahead, we did and were very pleased

Needing a place to stay for daughter's wedding and vacation , this was the perfect place to stay. Clean, quiet, comfortable, and very reasonably priced. would we stay here again? You bet your boots! We will look for other Value Places if we need an extended stay place for other trips. Highly recommend this chain for EVERYONE!!

This place is a joke! I should have known better than to stay here. What is the old saying, “You get what you pay for,” well is that ever true for this place. I was not expecting the Waldorf by any means, but I was actually expecting to get sleep while I was there! There is absolutely no insulation in the walls whatsoever! You can hear everything!! The person above me all week long would start moving around about 10pm and would not stop until well after 4am. It was so horrible and there was no one to complain to because the front desk closes at 6pm. The beds are also hard as a brick and they only give you two pillows. You have to do an inventory count of everything in your room after you check in and before you check out. It’s like you are in prison or something! It’s very unwelcoming. Also, you have to pay extra for cookware and a coffee maker! (Couldn’t they just put these things in the room and add them to the check list) I understand why they do this (too cut corners/say money), but it makes it really inconvenient for the guest. If you want to do laundry, you have to put money on a card. By the way it is $1.50 to wash and a $1.50 to dry, which isn’t bad, but the minimum you can put of the card is $5, so you do the math! You have to make a payment up front for the whole week, so make sure you take a look at a room before you pay!! (All Payments Are Nonrefundable, which they inform you after you have checked-in. I feel like the only good thing this place has going for it is its location. Hope this helps, thanks for reading!! =)

We stayed here for a week over Memorial Weekend. Overall it was a good experience. The hotel was full and I never felt unsafe or that there were any unsavory people staying there. Mostly I saw families and tradesmen (subcontractors) in the parking lots and halls and everyone seemed to be pretty respectful and quiet. I never saw any partiers or anyone being loud. The employees are friendly and helpful and seemed to be very consciensious to help out in whatever way they can and to keep things running smoothly.

If it wasn't for the very thin, hard mattress and poor noise insulation I would have given it 5 stars because it is a good value for the price, especially if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in your room like we did. If you are a light sleeper, I would highly recommend bringing an egg crate or some other kind of mattress overlay and maybe even some ear plugs.

Another caviat is that you can really hear footsteps from the floor above you and in the halls. I was actually surprised that it wasn't louder considering it was a holiday weekend and it was fully occupied. Our room was very clean and had everything that we needed and we didn't miss having maid service.
