The hotel is in a good location. There were several restaurants close by, one of which was Denny's. The service was fast, the restaurant clean, and the wait staff very friendly. There's also a McDonald's in the parking lot.
We stayed in room 329. The room was very clean, but very basic for the price charged. I thought the price was a little high. Bed was very firm, too firm, which was not good for my bad back; therefore, I got about three hours' sleep. The bathroom was tiny, but clean. It was a really good thing I brought shampoo and conditioner, because there were no toiletries other than soap.
Probably the biggest negative for me was that when the door to the room was closed, there was a loud sound of whooshing air from the glass-enclosed hallway. It appears the rooms once opened directly to the outside, like a one-floor motel, and were then enclosed. It created a lot of negative pressure in the hall, which made the room noisy and it was difficult to open and close the door. It also caused a lot of cool air to be forced into the room under the door. That was actually a plus for us, because the AC unit would only push out warm air no matter what setting or temperature we set it to. So I guess we had "alternative air conditioning".
To sum it up, it was clean and convenient, just not comfortable, which is why I think it was priced a little high. Under 100.00/night would be more reasonable.
