Stayed here for a weekend while visiting family. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Would give 3.5 stars b/c there is nothing that really sets this hotel apart from others that are close by (and I think are better). The pool is sub-par, the $12.95 / day internet charge is annoying, the onsite food/drink options are nice but expensive. I don't mind paying top dollar for good food at Shula's but don't like feeling ripped off buying coffee / food at the lobby area coffee stand for 2X or 3X the price of the major coffee chains (You can go one block down the street and go to starbucks).
Parking was convenient and free in the garage backing the property. We probably wouldn't stay here again with all of the better choices close by.
