This hotel is what you think it is. Its an older place in a less-glamourous part of the city. Its not bad at all though. The interior and public spaces have seen much better days, but the room itself was quite good except for the desk chair. The beds were a tad soft, but comfy. Good linens and pillows. The desk chair was comfortable for sitting, but not for using a computer for extended periods or any other work at the desk.
Getting to and from the hotel was easy due to a close off ramp from the freeway. Harley-Davidson and Miller factories and offices are nearby. They have a free shuttle downtown though I didnt use it. And free covered and/or uncovered parking. Taco Bell is just across the street (huge plus for me).
Its reasonably affordable, clean enough, and probably central enough for most travellers. There is a concert hall just down the street which can make the area noisy after the show lets out, etc., but the night I was there is was perfectly quiet. Ask for a room further back in the hotel to avoid the noise from Wisconsin Ave.
Check-in staff was friendly and knowledgable. Morning guy seemed ambivalent about being there so a lack of consistency across the service levels. Breakfast was very minimal and a small room. I didnt partake. My room had a microwave and a small fridge, so good for a few things.
