I received this hotel from Hotwire. The front desk person checking me in quickly informed me that I booked through "a third party", so I was not entitled to anything extra. Upgrades, late check out, nothing. At this point I made sure I would not spend a dime at this hotel. I parked around the block, and took a cab downtown to eat. These hotels should realize that just because I used a third party booking place, I still spend money. If they don't want 'third party bookings", don't put yourself on these sites.
Location: too far away from downtown, they have a shuttle but only runs once per hour.
Room: Typical cheap hotel room. Window a/c. Plastic glasses to drink from.
If you are in need of a lower end hotel, this would be fine. I only saved a little bit over their regular rate when I used my third party booking company. I would not stay here again, because of the front desk attitude and poor location.
