I was looking for a hotel close to the Greyhound station, and this fit the bill location-wise. The hotel is pretty much right downtown, the area seemed safe and clean.
The room was spacious and fairly well-appointed. It's not the fanciest hotel ever, but it is comfortable and clean. The balcony was definitely a nice touch.
Decent breakfast in the morning: eggs, potatoes, juice, yogurt, toast, muffins, coffee.
There is a pool and a hot tub outside.
I did run into a little bit of an attitude from staff though. Because I (unknowingly) walked into the breakfast area just before breakfast hours were ending, I was, a few minutes later, in a somewhat impatient tone queried by a member of the hotel staff as to whether I was "the last one left to eat." Huh? Am I supposed to keep track of all the hotel guests to know if they're still planning to eat breakfast or not? I was so taken aback by that question, I wasn't sure what it even meant. Did she think I was part of a larger group? Did she wonder if I saw other guests leaving the buffet? So I told her the place was empty when I came in, which elicit a hint of an exasperated grimace and the comment about how they were supposed to close the breakfast area at 9 (it was 3 minutes after). I still don't know what she meant, but it wasn't a very pleasant interaction, even if the displeasure was minor.
Other than that, though, didn't run into any problems (not that I spent a long time there). Pretty happy with the choice overall.
