The rooms are nice enough but lack extras, no extra pillows or blankets, coffee makers or hair dryers. The hotel provides Direct TV and Wi Fi (when it's working). There is an exercise room on the first floor and a weight room in the basement (which also serves as a locker room for the railroad employees who stay at the hotel). There is a computer room but that is for railroad employees only and has no internet service, the computers only go to the railroad employee web site.
There is a large TV room(also used by rail crews for work prep) with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, and toaster for guests use. Once when three items were used at the same time the fuse for the room blew and everything went dark. A railroad worker who was present said this has been ongoing since they built the hotel and that management was aware of the problem but didn't care enough to fix it.
While I was there the fire alarm went off, on investigation at 3am in the morning I found that some one had burnt popcorn in the microwave, this setting off the alarm. It went on for over 10 minutes as none of the employees knew how to turn it off. A railroader staying there then began pushing buttons in a control panel till the alarm finally went off.
The hotel is supposed to be non-smoking but the bathroom in my room stunk like cigarette smoke. The shower curtains and walls reeked with smoke, it was so bad I had to change rooms. The second room was better but one could still smell the faint odor in the bathroom.
The room had a small fridge and microwave which was nice. The desk chair however was covered in stains and I did not want to sit on it. The pillows are old and worn out from over use. the TV was an old tube type that was on it's last legs.
If they fixed the smoking issue as well as upgraded the pillows, chairs and TV I would stop again, otherwise next time I'll keep driving.
