While this is not an elegant five star property, it has some excellent features including large, well equipped rooms with full kitchen, living room area, good beds, flat screen TV, wifi, and good lighting. I liked being able to park near my room too. Every morning there is a large breakfast buffet that includes several hot dishes, cereals and yogurt, fruit, juice and coffee, waffles, and a variety of breads and muffins....and it is refilled as needed during the entire 3 hour time slot. Three nights a week there is also a social buffet which could be a barbecue night with burgers, hot dogs, and grilled chicken breasts, baked beans, potato salad, chips, and good salad options. Other nights there are meatballs and spaghetti, meatball subs, tacos, etc....none of them gourmet or balanced entree plates but all are popular comfort foods with the options of a big salad as well. There is a small but okay fitness center with 4 machines and you might have to wait at 7:30 AM but otherwise it is easily available. The downsides are that there are mobs of people for the buffets, including families with sometimes uncontrolled children during school holidays, dogs are welcome at the hotel and may bark, and there are no elevators for upstairs rooms. We found that some days we were happy to make do with healthful barbecued chicken breast on salad for dinner GRATIS and it was a nice addition, along with included wine and sodas. The room was perfectly clean, we did not see even one insect, and the property was well kept.
