We stayed at this hotel because of its close proximity to the hospital where my husband was having surgery early the next morning. We were able to get the "hospital preferred" rate which was nearly 1/2 of the cost of our "Senior Discount" rate online.
The best thing they have going for this property is incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff at the front desk. The next best things are that the room and bathroom were quite clean, and our room surprisingly had a mini-frig and microwave.
However, this is an older property and really needs some TLC. The lobby is flat out ugly. The TV reception on the older model (not flat screen) TV was so bad that we could not even see the major network channels. And the AC/heat unit didn't work well at all and was quite noisy when it did work. The walls in this hotel are thinner than in a lot of hotels we've stayed in, so consequently we heard a good bit of noise from other rooms.
Be sure to request an interior room (facing the courtyard-parking) because this hotel is at a very busy intersection, and the street noise would be something to contend with. It has immediate access to I-66, and is within walking distance of a number of eateries.
So for the purpose it served, it was fine at the "hospital rate", but I would have not been pleased at all had I paid the higher rate. The staff made the stay much better, and the convenience and location served our purposes perfectly. Hopefully the owners will upgrade this property so that it really "shines"!
