OK, we had low expectations, since we read a few reviews right after booking thru Travelocity. (Who selected a smoking room for us, thanks Travelocity! NOT!) We got a deal, and since we had a gift card to use, we decided to be adventurous & try it. First, it's a different experience than most hotels. Not a big lobby, no restaurant, pool, lounge, bar, etc. The attraction is the kitchen in your room; a real sink, real size fridge, electric cooktop, microwave, plenty of cabinets and counter space with utensils to use. Kitchen table/counter to work at is nice. If you're here for a few days, you'll appreciate this. Make a trip to Wegmans & stock up! Cleanliness was acceptable, though we're not fussy. Bed was comfortable, heat & A/C worked (curtains could be hung so as not to billow & catch air though) and the bathroom was average size. Everything worked, staff was very friendly & helpful. The place was very quiet overall, not surprising being well off the highway & not too busy.
So now for the negatives, which may seem picky to some. The bathroom was a bit odd. Let's start with the brown flecked texture paint on the tub/surround/sink. Looks like a small animal exploded. Eww! The toilet is oddly rigged for high water pressure, you have to be a beast to flush it. Towels are for small people (we're not that big!) and there was no hairdryer in the room. (Front desk gave us one when we asked, as well as more towels.) Grab & go breakfast is as advertised: prepackaged hi-carb goodies & coffee. If you're a breakfast person there are plenty of nearby eateries, or make your own.
Which brings up this topic: like a college dorm, there are those who are good at burning food late at night! The fire alarm went off one night we were there, and staff should be commended for handling this very well. Fire dept. members in Henrietta get kudos as well for their sense of humor.
