This is an old hotel, rather dorm-like, with no frills lobby, pool and rooms. The granite countertops were a nice touch and I love the extra sink outside the bathroom- it really helps to get the family moving more quickly.
Our room had both a small fridge and microwave which is also helpful. Unfortunately, that refrigerator had a "knocking" sound occuring all night long. It sounded like someone knocking at the door and it kept me up all night.
My daughter loved the beds- my husband said too soft. No one will ever agree here- but I would say they were on the soft side. I did notice the fluffy towels, larger than most standard budget hotels.
Hair dryer, coffee, tea, shampoo and soap provided in the room, deli and restaurant in the lobby.
