There was roof construction blocking about 25% of the already severely limited parking. The rooms clearly used to be smoking rooms as the smell still lingers. The second floor hallways also constantly had a very weird smell, enhanced by the lack of air conditioning in the halls.

I spent five nights here on business in January. It was a pleasant stay; rooms have real kitchens, plenty of room to spread out and work, comfortable bedding, nice toiletries.
There's complimentary breakfast with fresh fruit, several hot items, and very good coffee. There were yummy muffins that were kept in a warmer, so it was like taking them right out of the oven. They also serve food in the evening, but I didn't try it.
The weather was VERY cold the week that I was there, and the fireplace in the lobby was inviting. The front desk staff was polite, and check in was efficient. The hotel is in a business area, but there are several dining options nearby. It was a pleasant stay at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Stay on the upper floor. Some of my colleagues had noise issues on a couple nights.

My room was very clean, very nice stay. Internet in the room was great, no issues. Haven't had breakfast yet but should be good. Location was easy to find- right off of highway. no noise from room though.

Decent hotel, friendly staff, clean, high pressure water, staff friendly, and completely terrible internet. If you need to do anything more then read a single new article then you're out of luck with the internet. Traveling on business for work and I'm lucky if a website loads let alone anything else. I called the help desk and they explained the network wasn't designed for anything more then the most basic of web browsing. No videos, work functions, music, etc.

Pros
1. allowed early check in
2. very kind staff
3. clean spacious suites
4. very affordable

We got in early and they were able to check us in early. The pool was nice. The rooms were quite. The location is very accessible. Make sure you put a "do not disturb" sign on your door - room service came twice before 9am!
