I spent a night here before a business meeting nearby. Having read great reviews for the hotel my expectations were quite high, although I was a bit wary of the fact there did not seem to be many hotels geared to business travel with more than basic services in the area.
The hotel can be tricky to find. You'll spot the hotel signs without a problem, but the hotel is buried in the back of a massive parking lot filled with stores. In their defense they were apparently there first, but so much for a setting!
The hotel offers Happy Hour snacks, and perhaps this best characterizes the place. Although it's quite considerate, the fare was essentially chex mix and Bud Lite. Having sampled that snack, I decided to pass on the "full breakfast", as I was sure it would have been the standard scrambled eggs and sausage.
I also ran into a major problem in the morning as I was getting ready to leave. To my dismay the shower didn't work (the spout cutoff that should send the water up to the shower nozzle was faulty). I did not have time to do anything other than make do, but I did report it to the staff upon checkout. To my great surprise I was met with some skepticism (!) and no offer to compensate me in any way. Oops - they missed that one.
