The hotel is nice, conveniently located near the 581 and just in front of Tanglewood mall. Plenty of restaurants around, fast access to downtown though the 581, near Mill Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The hotel is clean, ample rooms, big comfortable bed, great wireless Internet access (fast and working all the time), comfortable desk. I don't know how good the TV cable service is, I turned it on a couple times and it seems basic. TV series, news, local channels, etc. Nothing looked like premium, no new movies, no specials. There are coffee machines in the rooms but you can get coffee already made at any time. The windows are locked, there's an air conditioning system (hot, cold or fan only) with local controls. I like fresh air from an open window but it's not a big deal.
Lights are fine although it would be better to have less options for diffuse lights (entrance, bathroom area, bed, desk) and a more focused light over the desk. I ended up working over the bed with the bedside lights.
Bathrooms are fine but a little too small for my taste. They're the typical compartment for toilet and shower capsule with the sink/mirror outside. The rooms have hair dryer and iron and ironing board, three things that I don't use so I can't comment.
The whole hotel is neat and clean, however I found a box of gum left behind by a previous traveler. It shows that they're not good at details. The box had 35 cts and a couple gum pills left. I took the coins, so I can't really complain about that.
Breakfast is limited in variety. Coffee, decaf, tea, orange and cranberry juice, two choices of cereal (one is the awful Froot-Loops that tastes like Play-doh) and bagels with butter, Philadelphia and jam. There are ice and soda machines too but that's all.
Employees are friendly and helpful but, being mostly a self service hotel, you won't see much of them. You can see their work though, the hotel runs like clockwork. Plain and simple clock but working.
Overall, the hotel is fine but at that price range I'm sure you can get the same plus a room fridge and full continental and American breakfast.
