I really wanted to love this hotel after reading the reviews. However, it appeared to be very clean except for the one thing I just do not like in a hotel these days. I do not like a sheet-blanket combination on my bed. I much prefer a duvet and sheet.To me, they seem cleaner and more sanitary. Besides the sheet-blanket thing, the sheets and pillow cases seemed wrinkly, not like fresh linens..I don't know, maybe it's just me and my preference. Also, housekeeping did not replenish the amenities in our room during our stay (shampoo, coffee). Other than those minor things, it was a pleasant stay. Oh, except for the pointy toothpick my foot discovered under our bottom sheet.
The bathroom was large, granite shower only, and clean with granite counter tops.
The breakfast room was kept spotless by the lovely young man working there. He was polite and made sure you had whatever you needed including making your waffles for you. There was the usual variety of breakfast items you find in every transient hotels these days with something for everyone. Popcorn in the lobby was a nice touch. Microwave, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Free wifi. All in all, a nice, affordable hotel.
