The only gripe I have with this place is that I did not get any sleep at all with the noise from the AC. The AC sounded like a generator. Actually the noise was not a problem, because I can tolerate it as background noise. However, the AC has an internal thermostat that allowed itself to automatically turn on and off. So, it woke me every time it turn on with all the noise. It was like off for 5 min, on for 30 min, off for 5 min and so on. It must have turned on/off a 100 times throughout the night. This is a bit of an exaggeration but you get the point.
if you're lucky enough to get a quieter AC, then I think you would enjoy your stay here. The bed is pretty comfy (that's a lot coming from someone who's used to a tempurpedic bed), the work desk is decent sized and bathroom is super clean. Also, if you're getting breakfast here, try the blueberry muffin, it's probably the best muffin I've ever tasted- it is super moist and not throat-constricting sweet. Or if you missed breakfast, check the front desk sitting area for leftover muffins.
I probably wouldn't return here just because I don't want to risk it and i was not able to do what I came and pay for-- sleep.
