I've stayed here twice. There were no problems the first time and only one the second. All night long on my second stay I heard ocassional banging noises that I thought were doors closing hard. But there were so few guests in the hotel that it could not have been them. It could only have been the pipes that made a bit of noise when I showered in the morning.
The room was fine. It was big enough, the bed was comfortable, there were enough pillows, and I appreciate a room with a refrigerator. There were also enough HD TV channels to satisy me. Why can't more chains just do a basic room like this?
The hot breakfast was more than adequate.
I do want to say a bit about the service - it was top-notch. Every staffer (both stays) I encountered wanted to go out of his/her way to be helpful. From check-in clerk to breakfast room attendant they all wanted to know what I needed. I was especially impressed when the shuttle driver even offered to take me to work 15 minutes before his shift started.
