This hotel is nice and is a good value. On the plus side, the breakfast was free and tasty (but be ware that they start picking it up about 15 minutes before it actually closes). The staff were nice. The beds and pillows were comfy. The rooms were spacious (the hotel pictures are accurate).
On the downside, as of thanksgiving 2012, there was construction next door. Be prepared to get up by 7:30 when they start work. I imagine there will be construction for at least a few more months.
We found the shower temps to be somewhat touchy (went from warm to hot fairly easily), but overall fine. They've replaced the bathroom lights with CFLs, which is great for the environment, but now it feels like we have floodlights in the bathroom. We ended up taking out 2/4 lights so we could bare it.
The clock radio was terrible. The alarm didn't work and it wasn't backlit (so useless in the dark).
On the second and third day, our cards stopped working. This is quite annoying when it's cold out and all you want to do is get in the stupid hotel. The staff were nice about fixing it, but why did it keep happening? We were careful to not store our cards with anything else electronic or magnetized.
The fitness room had a broken treadmill and the tv channels couldn't be changed.
There were several minor annoyances that really took away from the stay. Although it's conveniently located by where we wanted to be, I'm not sure we would stay here again. Thhere are plenty of other hotels to choose from in the samr area. Plus, we dint want to have to deal with construction noise on our vacation.
