There is nothing fancy about this place but if you're just looking for a clean room to put your head down for a bit, this will work. On the down side: Rooms are very, very small (like NYC small). I'm not sure what the pictures on the web site are because my room looked nothing like them. I did not like that there was nowhere to sit other than the desk chair or the bed. The walls were pretty thin and there were odd clankings though the night (old plumbing? old HVAC?). My room was in the front of the building and a spotlight pointed directly into my room. The elevator was out of service, but it's only two stories so walking up a flight of stairs for a few days was no big deal. Housekeeping was...inconsistent. There's the typical "green" option where your linens and towels won't be changed if you're game. Fine by me, but they either changed my towels every day anyway, or just took the used ones and didn't replace them.
On the bright side, the room appeared to be recently refreshed and the bathroom was updated. The staff was very nice and the complimentary breakfast did have a good variety of healthy options like oatmeal and fresh fruit. It's located in the middle of a strip mall/chain restaurant area so not at all charming like the historic area, but safe and convenient to downtown and the highway. Take the time to drive the 10-15 minutes to downtown for meals; the number and variety of really great locally owned restaurants is impressive.
Overall, it gets a big "eh" but it wasn't terrible.
