Upon arriving on a dreary, raining afternoon I admit I was a bit disappoined. The place looked a bit rundown from the outside. As we entered we saw the tiny breakfast area. The woman at the front desk was friendly. We were put in a small room on the first floor. The room smelled badly as did the recently fumigated (I'm guessing) hallways. It's possible the new carpet was still off-gassing. Our safe was locked and we couldn't get it open. I called the front desk and the woman immediately came to the room and attempted to open the safe. When I commented on the bad smell and the fact that I don't feel safe on the first floor, she immediately offered to put us in a suite on the second floor at no extra charge. The suite was spacious and clean with two rooms both of which had flat screen TVs and closets. The added benefit of the second room was that one of us could work while the other slept or whatever.
The safe in this room also would not open and she explained to us that they had all been locked during the reservation. The poor woman got down on her knees and practically had to lie on the floor to plug in a digital box to get it open. From that point on she was very nice and friendly towards us. As it turns out it is a family run business and they are in the process of painting the outside of the building. However, due to the rain they have not been able to complete it. All the rooms have been nicely renovationed and updated.
It's true, breakfast wasn't much to speak of. There was no yogurt, only Activa, which I hate. There was only cereal and a few muffins and bagels. The coffee was hot and there was fresh milk. We grabbed a few bananas. It wasn't the kind of place where you wanted to linger or sit down while eating.
Overall, I thought it was a bargain! Everything was newly renovated. The woman at the front desk turned out to be lovely, and very helpful. Good location. I would recommend.
