Large, clean, reasonably well appointed room, with comfortable bed and reclining chair. Nice pool area. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff - which makes all the difference. Good hot breakfast buffet. Outdoor hallway, a bit of road noise in the front, but quieter than many big city hotels.
so, unless you're looking for upscale (such as room service, inside hallways, hi-def TV, etc) there is no reason to stay pay more at a chain hotel.More
