Recently stayed here for a week with a large group. We pulled up in front and were very pleased with the appearance. The exterior is wrapped in glass, the lobby very modern and stylish. The staff was very pleasant and cordial. Then we turned the corner past the lobby and quickly realized we had just seen the best this "hotel" has to offer. The lobby. This is a spruced up MOTEL. From the cheap, Value City furniture to the Styrofoam cups in plastic bags, this is a MOTEL. The rooms all face into a "courtyard" (parking lot) which makes for plenty of noise. The housekeeping carts rumbling down the halls vibrate throughout the building. I had to ask someone to come up to my room to clean the black mold off of my bathroom walls. That's right, MOLD. Walking around in my room in bare feet made the bottoms of my feet black. The cheap furniture is cracked and falling apart. From their brochure, "The contemporary design provides guestrooms with unexpected character...." Depends on your definition of unexpected, I guess.
