“OK, but rooms show wear & tear”
Reviewed May 21, 2004

First of all, these aren't really suites, they're one ordinary sized room with a partial wall between the sleeping area and the seating area. The TV is located between the two areas. There's a sofabed and chair in the living area, and a kitchenette with a sink, small fridge, microwave, and dishes & utensils. Also a small desk and chair. The lobby is nice, and they serve a complimentary breakfast there. Location is up a little hill from Maine Mall near the Marriott. They have a van that will bring you back & forth from the mall or airport. The main problem is that the rooms are worn--all furniture has nicks and dents, desk chairs had stuffing popping out of the edges, one lampshade was badly torn, and the room wasn't decorated attractively. Still, it wasn't an unpleasant stay, really, and if you get a good price, not a bad value. The room set-up would be particularly good for a family with young children.
