The rooms are small and if you want to use a roll away bed you are stuck with a first floor room. The rooms face the parking lot so they have no view. you have to rearrange all the furniture to make the roll away bed fit in the room, which just fits if you think it through. They do not have a swimming pool if you are hoping to swim with the kids. No refrigerators or coffee pots in the rooms. They do have free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in the lobby at all times.
The shower and the bathroom in general was small. The one light located on the ceiling was hard to find the switch for. The mattresses where all hard to sleep on. most of them where hard and lumpy.
The free breakfast is very basic but does not include milk or cereal for kids. if you want that you need to go to Mel's Dinner that is connected to the Hotel. Good food.
The staff are very friendly and helpful when asking for anything especially directions. Which when you go if you have never been there before, remember parking is expensive. At the hotel it is $35.00 a day.
