My 8 yr old and I stayed here for a weekend while visiting family in the area. Location was nice - appreciated the (complimentary) airport and mall shuttle and staff was all friendly and helpful. Room was clean but had an odd odor the 2nd day on (smoky??). Our room was at the end of the hall on I-92 side of the top floor (6th) so no noise whatsoever from the 'dance club' or other rooms, and noise from the highway was what I'd expect - we left windows closed at night, cracked them open in the morning.
Couldn't get the internet to work in my room, but the business center is free of charge to use their computers and printer. Pool and hottub was great for my 8 yr old - but as another poster mentioned, the pool area is right IN the main lobby with just glass between you and them. Felt a bit like otters at the aquarium. Be sure you bring a cover-up if you feel self-conscious!
Breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious. 2 of the 3 days I wasn't charged a kids' buffet price so that was a perk.
