This place was fine, but I didn't love it.
Pros: Inexpensive. Lots of space. Well-stocked, new-looking kitchen.
Cons: Internet confusion. Not really that quiet. A bit beat up.
My room was huge. Even with the almost full kitchen (everything but an oven), there was lots of space.
The kitchen was nice, too. A full sized refrigerator with freezer. Very well stocked with plates, glasses, pots & pans, utensils. New-looking appliances.
The bed was comfortable if you like a firm bed. This hotel is doing what all the hotels seem to be doing now. A sheet + a duvet. I find the comforter heavy and hot and would much rather have a sheet and a blanket, but I am apparently in the minority.
The morning breakfast was fine. Run-of-the-mill, but better than your average Hampton Inn, for example. Can't complain too much about free breakfast!
The room was clean. Other than in the new-looking kitchen, the furnishings seemed a bit battered. The exterior of the hotel looks kind of beaten and worn as well.
The hotel has free wireless. Unfortunately, the internet instructions in the room still say that you have to connect by the provided wired connection and that wireless is only available in the lobby. But the wired connection doesn't work. To further compound the confusion, the free wireless connection is unhelpfully named "Wireless211" and is not the strongest nearby wireless signal. To even further compound the confusion, the person at the desk clearly did not understand my question about the trouble I was having connecting to the internet and gave me the phone number of the internet service company so that I could call them myself. What?! Every room should have the correct connection information: Connect to Wireless211, open your browser, agree to the things they want you to agree to, and you're on. Simple.
