I found this to be a good stay. Check-in was quick and easy, I hadn't requested a fridge on reservation but once I arrived I asked for one and it was delivered to my room very shortly after we went upstairs - so that was quick service that we appreciated.
We were also happy to get a breakfast included and not your stingy continental breakfast either. So that saved us more than a few bucks had we gone out and tried to get something similar in one of the many restaurants nearby.
Overall look of the place is what many reviewers say, the time for a remodelling was long ago. I did still think the cleanliness of the room was good enough. But the need to modernize is a recurring theme - TV is an old Zenith, cable reception is not very good on some channels, vending machings are really outdated (don't even accept dollar coins and I almost hurt myself trying to get the items out of them), the shower took some figuring out and could also use and upgrade.
The main drawback - the wifi, several problems to the point of being useless at times.
But all these issues which they should try to make improvements on are not enough to take away from the many benefits of this stay. Yes, they could do a lot more with this place but it is still way more than adequate.
