Stayed here for BeadFest this past weekend. Before I booked the room I asked how close it was to the Expo Center. Once I heard it was 1/2 mile away I hustled to Expedia and grabbed a room. It was as close as promised. The staff is very friendly. They called once I settled in to make sure I was satisfied. Then again the night before check out. The breakfast buffet is nothing to crow about--it's standard fare, just enough to get you going in the morning. The room was larger than my old apartment. Bedding was fresh, kitchenette and bathroom were spotless. No room service or spa here. Pool is small but comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.
