I stayed at the Habitat Suites for a girlfriends' getaway. The staff was friendly (though we did have one irritating snafu with the key-cards for the room) and the hotel is very pleasant, with lovely landscaped grounds. The full breakfast was pretty good. Other reviews complained about outdated decor, but although it was not cutting-edge, we thought it was perfectly fine. Nights were quiet, except for the bird-song at 4 a.m. We didn't do any cooking, so I can't comment on the kitchen facilities.
The only downside -- but a significant one, depending on your needs -- is the location. We stayed for 3 days/2 nights, and drove back and forth to town at least 4 times during that time -- it's 15 minutes with light traffic, but can be 30 or more in heavy traffic. We were all very happy with the cost of the hotel, but in retrospect, we might have been willing to spend a bit more to stay downtown and avoid spending all that time in the car.
