I called ahead en route to see if we could get a room and the woman who answered was very nice and gave us a good rate. We arrived just before dark and were a little leery about the parking area, it was either park right on the street or in a parking area along the side of the building and both had people milling around, sitting in cars, talking on phones and in one instance yelling at one another.
I went ahead and checked in, we have never been to the area before and I had no idea where to start looking for an alternate place and the hotel can't really be expected to make people outside behave. We were put on the 4th floor, which involved several trips back and forth because we did not want to leave anything in the van overnight.
My husband and I used the exercise room, which has a stepper that never did turn on, a bike, a treadmill and a weight bench. There were no towels and everything felt sticky, like it really needed to be gone over with some cleaner.
The next morning, we had breakfast before heading out and the kids liked the waffle maker.
The room was clean, the beds were comfortable. Our AC unit made horrible noises that woke us all up each time it kicked on or off. Other than that, the hotel was very quiet. Our single issue was handled very quickly-there were only 2 towels in the bathroom and we needed more.
The internet was very fast and steady. The bedding and furniture looked new, the carpet was very clean. Overall, it was a good stay, I just wish the parking lot was not so scary. When I went to move the van from the front of the building very early the next morning to a level parking spot beside the building so we could load it more easily, I was barked at by a small dog and when I went to check on it, someone in a white truck called it over and shut the door and they both settled back in to sleep. I can only guess there are homeless people sleeping in the parking area and he had let his dog out to use the bathroom.
