I stayed at this hotel on a business trip. I took advantage of a package deal that included a night's lodging, shuttle service to the airport, and a week's parking. This is my first experience with this chain but if most properties are similar to this one it will be my new first choice! The room was small, as most budget chains tend to be, but felt spacious enough. My bed was a queen size, and very comfortable. The room was extremely clean and free of odors. The bathroom had a walk-in shower with a door instead of a tub, which is actually my preference (no icky shower curtains to have to avoid touching). My room was well lit and had plenty of electrical outlets for charging things. The climate control worked fine and wasn't too noisy. the wireless internet and TV worked perfectly. The housekeeping staff was very helpful and friendly, though they did not speak english very well. They very graciously refrained from laughing at me as I struggled with my spanish, and we managed to communicate fine.
Now for the negatives, which are few: The property was a little hard to find because the signage was not well lit at night and the entrance is from a side street, not the street address. The pillows were not comfortable at all. They were almost square shaped instead of rectangle, more like large throw pillows designed more for appearance than comfort. The bedspread was one of those old fashioned motel polyester floral print jobs that always makes you wonder how often it is cleaned and what might be revealed by a black-light (yuck). The complimentary breakfast was not great, but pretty much what I expected. The Coffee was not very good, at all. Also, they do not keep complimentary coffee out after serving hours (probably a blessing, given the quality of it). I just needed another dose while waiting for the next scheduled shuttle to the airport. I did discover one of the best cups of coffee I've ever had at the upscale hotel next door, which was complimentary even after I told them I wasn't a guest. The desk staff could have been more helpful. While not rude it was clear that I was not the most important thing on their minds and they did not go out of their way to be helpful.
All in all, an extremely good experience, if not quite excellent and given the price point, this hotel represents an excellent value. I will certainly stay here again.
