So I posted before asking which hotel was better, the IES or SHS (SpringHill Suites). Apparently SHS is like right near a semi-questionable area (MLK Blvd, etc) so we ended up booking IES - it's a little cheaper too, $167/n for a suite with 2 double beds (there are 2 of us).
IES has 4/5 stars here and 3/5 stars on Yelp, based on reviews, but it seems the reviews I read are either really great or really awful - one person said they had ants in their room, a few people have said the room didn't look clean. Someone else said they had to ask for TP and towels to be replenished.
So has anyone stayed there, especially in the suites? I've also heard the suites are a lot nicer than the main building/area.
