It's clear this is the hotel of choice for folks in town to see a game. It's been here for quite some time and it shows in a lot of ways. The front looks nice enough, same for the lobby. Venture down the hall to the rooms and you quickly realize this building has some age/wear to it. The rooms show wear on the doors, walls, etc. The bathroom is small - the door JUST gets by the toilet. The bed was comfortable, which is about all that I can come up with that is positive about the room. The workout room is nicer than one would expect - it has a nice variety of modern treadmills and ellipticals. It also has a few exercise balls and free weights up to 50lbs. Not bad! I didn't try the restaurant - it looked dated and long past it's prime. There is no "free" bfast in the morning, by the way. I couldn't even find a free cup of coffee other than what I made in my room.
Do be careful in the area. It's clear the economy has taken its toll around the hotel. There were a lot of "less fortunate" folks walking around the area.
Finally, good luck finding a restaurant to eat at. It's a short walk up the road to the Covington area where there are a couple of restaurants. I would say it's a 5-7min. walk. Nothing other than chain fast food near the hotel.
I found the room on Priceline for about 65% of what they wanted for the room. For one night, it was fine. That's all I can say.
