On arrival, there was a line of people waiting to check in. The key coding machine was inoperable, so the staff couldn't issue keys. They did, however, run guests to their rooms and let them in with their master key.
The room was clean and comfortable--pretty much a standard HI Express room. Mine faced the Interstate highway (about 100 yards away) and there was some traffic noise. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a room that faces US 1.
The location is a few miles south of the hustle of all the shopping in downtown Freeport, so you would need to drive there from the hotel.
Finally, the receptionist offered up several suggestions for nearby restaurants.
While not the perfect stay, I would return.
