Stayed here for an extended stay for work and although the rooms were comfortable enough, some details made it a real problem. The biggest was the internet access, which was ridiculously slow regardless of whether you were plugged in or going over wifi. Slow to the point that my Citrix-based access to my work network was impossible to use. I can't remember having such a problem in over ten years.
The other real issue was the restaurant, which was neither here nor there. Only breakfast, and that was done badly. It was basically an expensive ($12/day) buffet where you paid (and tipped) a waitress to walk over to the same place you were going to get your eggs or bagel and pour you a glass of juice from a machine (you could get eggs to order, too).
The elevators were ridiculously slow during any kind of rush times. The elevator problem is exacerbated by the fact that it's a two-story lobby with the main part on the second floor --- lots of folks hit "1" and then realized they really wanted "2," taking the elevators on an unneeded journey to the bottom each time. Some better signage might help that, though the real issue is the speed of the elevators themselves. It's only a 7-floor hotel.
Otherwise the hotel is a pretty standard Courtyard. Comfortable room, very clean. The staff were friendly, particularly the housekeeping folks. Oh, and actual tv, not LodgeNet, which is always nice.
Bottom line: it's got a convenient location, but until the internet issue is fixed, I'd never use it for work again.
Stay on the third floor at one of the ends, and you can use the stairs instead of the elevators, whi...

Thank for your comments. Use of the internet keeps growing by leaps and bounds with the use of cell phone apps, downloadable games and movies, iPads and other technology. I am happy to announce we are currently in the process of adding 5 times the amount of our current band width. Hopefully this will put us ahead of the demand for it.
