Some very good reviews convinced us to book here... well, that and we got an exceptionally good rate from Priceline. However had we been paying the rate quoted to us over the phone, my review might be less positive.
The pluses: Spacious and clean room. Everything worked.
The minuses: Terrible location near nothing but a highway and a noisy one at that. Now to be fair, at night, with the windows closed and the hum of the A/C the road noise was not intrusive for us but for a light sleeper I can see where there might be problems.
Would I stay here again or recommend to a friend? Conditionally. A lot depends on what you're after and what you're paying for the room. If you get a good rate, have a car, and are willing to drive everywhere - even to the nearest 7-11, this place might work for you. If you're looking for something in the middle of it all, where you can walk out your door to shops, restaurants, etc., forget it.
