This is an average property due for a renovation. Room furnishings are showing their age. The breakfast is as advertised with hot items available. The suite layout is a plus. I've stayed at the La Quinta next door. It's inferior to this hotel. But you're better bet for a nicer place is south or up to the north.
On arrival I came into the lobby area and stood. And stood. Called out. No response. After five minutes I glanced at the manager's card and called the property. The phone rang and rang - about 25 times. No answer. At about 10 minutes an employee came walking into the lobby from the exterior. No eye contact or greeting to me until she came into the front desk area. I could smell the cigarette odor strongly on her.
May you arrive at a time other than the smoke break.
