We stayed here for a weekend trip through a Hotwire deal. The hotel is just average - the plus is definitely the staff, who are very courteous and the huge parking lot, right off I-95. That's where the positives end.
The rooms are very dark and dated - the roofs of the rooms had water marks and shows that they haven't done anything to it since it was opened. No microwave, no refrigerator. The carpets were dark and our room had so much hair on it. There were so many flies in the room too. The bath is quite okay. The beds sag and creek and wasn't inviting at all. We had two towels in the bath that were torn! For the rate we paid, we expect to have good towels and a bed I suppose. The hallway smells of smoke which kind of aggravates the experience we had in the room we got.
It is conveniently located to access Portland - about a 15 min drive to downtown - restaurants, take out places and a supermarket nearby is a plus. Egg and I is right in the same parking lot for breakfast and that is a glorified diner (Four seasons restaurants is also next door, but we didn't eat there).
Overall, just because of the quality of the staff, we give it an average rating - if not, I would have given a 1 star.
