We travel a lot and often stay at the budget inns of major chains. We know what to expect. We got it here. Clean rooms, friendly staff, edible breakfast, decent location, good internet speeds.
We are Elite members with Marriott and one other hotel group so we are always treated very nicely. Here I observed that the staff just knew how to treat people. I don't think they stopped to think what status they had in the loyalty club. They didn't have to. I spent some time in the lobby with my computer and watched the staff interacting with their guests. Everyone was treated better than most places we stay. The people you have working for you are so important, especially when they interface directly with the public. I don't think I've ever seen a manager out helping clean tables in the breakfast area. These people are a real team. KEEP THEM!
Two little complaints: the was that the hotel was a bit noisy. Creaky floors drive me nuts and the people in the room above us must have been pacing all night for some reason. Ask for a top floor and you'll be just fine. Second, the bathroom amenities did not seem to be the usual. The soaps were pretty bad, smelled foul, unlike anything we've experienced anywhere. Fortunately we travel with a bar of the soap we like just for eventualities like this.
