I stayed here a couple of years ago and noted some improvements:
Pros-Extremely clean and updated amenities (except heating/cooling unit); good water pressure; good customer service from employees; plentiful parking.
Cons-all rooms have outside entrance and since the building is smoke-free, all the smoking guests lurk around outside in the parking lot or outside the room entrances, making it a bit awkward and creepy; no in-room coffee makers or hairdryers.
My room was exceptionally clean and well-appointed. My neighbors were having "a bad day" and consequently were in and out of their room, smoking, fussing, and in generally being noisy which continued late into the evening. This was the "luck of the draw" (I could have asked for a different room but I really didn't want the inconvenience, so I just suffered). I didn't feel unsafe, I just didn't sleep well due to the commotion going on outside my room.
