Before you make a reservation to stay at this hotel, read the fine print. They charge a non-refundable $14.99 service fee, even if you cancel far in advance of the day before you are scheduled to arrive. You should also read the other reviews on...More

Thanks for writing a review. Please accept our apology for the over-zealous staff. Do Not Disturb should be sufficient. You contrast the two hotels nicely: budget versus more amenities and comfort. We hope you will give us another try.

I stayed here this past weekend. There's nothing special. I would have rather stayed at the LaQuinta next door. The building seemed dated and nothing all that grand. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean.

Thanks for writing review. We share your noise concerns. This sleepless writer takes a box fan for white noise when staying at a hotel. We passed on your housekeeping comments to our staff. We look forward to serving you again.
