This facility seems to be attempting to be above-par. Yet, there are some little fixes that would make my "Average" rating a "Very Good", which today I simply cannot justify.
First, the good:
The rooms are spacious, the parking lot is sufficiently large, and there is free breakfast and dinner. Meals also come with a drink voucher, whereby you could get a free cocktail at dinnertime. The staff is helpful, if not reserved, but your needs will be accommodated to up to the extent possible here.
For one, the fountain drink machines in the dining area are turned off in the evening. That means, unless you want nasty water from the hallway water fountains, go downstairs and buy one from the lobby store (maybe that was their point).
Furthermore, the room price was more than most, but nearly the same as the nearby Hilton. By no means is the Drury Inn the Hilton. I was quite disappointed with the accommodations, as everything looked great online - thanks marketing team. In reality, this place was not world-class or even top-in-class regionally, as the decor was cheap and poorly thought-out, and the furniture quite dated. I did not feel this was a great value, despite the free food, and was glad to check out the next day.
