“Smell of Smoke is Gone!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I am giving this facility an "excellent" this time because the smell of smoke was literally gone from the establishment. There was a very faint odor of smoke in the elevator but compared to last year....it is a day and night difference!

We were very pleased with the changes.

Room Tip: I did ask for the "best" room they could give me and I got a corner room with two very lar...

When we stay for a long project (5+ days) I like to have the option to cook meals. This Studio+ location even had an oven, so I was able to bake a Pineapple Upside Down cake.

PROS: The "rooms" are full-size studios - a galley kitchen, entry hall with closet & dresser, large living room with sofa, coffee table, side chair, side tables. Off to 1 side are the 2 beds with nighttable off of the bathroom. An office-manager set-up rather than hotel front desk makes you feel like this is your personal office with studio living arrangement.

CONS: Beds are old, saggy and desperately need replacing. Very limited kitchen necessties.

Everything was clean and well-kept, just dated and not top-of-the-line fit & finish.

New Sealy Posture-pedic beds and a complete set of kitchen tools (pots/pans/baking dish/ storage containers/ spatula) would change my rating of this location from a 3 to a 5.

We would return again, but would bring our own kitchen tools to be able to really enjoy cooking & the oven during our stay. We bought too many groceries during our last stay, so had to leave a lot behind.

Room Tip: 1 elevator to all floors, centrally located in the middle of the T building layout. Some rooms on th...

Just off the 235 through town yet nestled in a nice area and quiet. Comfortable enough room and bed. Not splendid but nice.

In a decent area, there are mainly office buildings around the building. There is a large mall very close, and a strip mall with Dollar Tree, Michael's and some other little stores close. Rooms are clean, the only thing that I was dissatisfied with was they say they offer a full kitchen, to me that meant baking dish, mixing bowls and cooking utensils. There was one spatula, no mixing spoons, no mixing bowls or a baking dish. I did however go to Dollar Tree and buy some mixing bowls and cooking utensils. The cooking store in the mall had a great cooking store with a baking dish and some measuring cups.

The check-in for this hotel is a little different in that the office is an actual office where you sit at a desk with the clerk. There is an elevator to get to the upper floors which is convenient. The hotel is getting a little old and the amenities are worn. The shower has an old shower head with light pressure and soft water. The kitchenette was nice and full size stove and refrigerator. It was very cold outside and it was clear the heater had not been on in my room for quite some time as the room was freezing and the heating system never blew true hot air just got luke warm and it took over five hours to heat the room. The bed was very comfortable but the blankets and sheets were itchy. Overall it was okay but nothing great.

The room was huge--bigger than expected even for a suite--but sparsely furnished. It was basics at best. The bed was OK. Nice to have a refrigerator to keep our dinner leftovers. We were staying only one night so it was tolerable.

I stayed in this hotel last night after the Tech N9ne concert along with a few of my friends. We had a double room, and a room down the hall, the rooms were pretty cool and the staff were nice enough when we arrived but within ten minutes of us getting back from the concert we got told if we got any complaints that the cops would be called. We held our noise down as much as a group of our size can but sure enough, 3am as we were all getting ready for bed anyway the cops were at our door. Then this morning, all of staff glared and acted as if we were horrible people. If your looking for an afterparty, don't stay here. We weren't even partying hard and still got treated badly because of it.
