Pros: Good location very near the airport and highway connections; Denny's across the street (to make up for the horrible HJ-standard breakfast) and an excellent Thai restaurant right next door; computer terminal in lobby worked well. Nearby strip clubs didn't bother us a bit. Cons: VERY soft beds; clean-but-dingy rooms, deadbolt worked but chain on door didn't, the aforementioned breakfast, bad tv reception. The worst was the check-in policy - we were told there would be a $20 surcharge to check in before noon and $10 to check in between noon and 2 pm, something we've never encountered before in some 40+ years of traveling. But we were able to put our luggage in a room off the lobby, along with a great pile of others' suitcases and store it until later in the afternoon. Essentially, we tend to stay in basic hotels, but this was a little too basic even for us.
