Comfy beds, roomy room, good pillows, lovely accessories in the bathroom.
We had a room designated handicapped, and that usually means a larger bathroom. In this case, it was rather large, and the grab bars were well-placed, but there is a tub, and that could mean it would be impossible for some of us to shower.
Single-serve coffee maker in the room with decent coffee, but those little packs of one sugar and one creamer were insufficient. Two paper cups, 2 sugar packs, 2 car and 2 decaf. Miserly, a bit.
Free parking in rear of hotel, directly behind the room, which was convenient. I would have liked a higher floor, but handicapped rooms are almost always on the ground or first floor for safety, so we couldn't have that.
Although the room was designated nonsmoking, the smell of cigarette smoke was in the hall. Joe, the front desk clerk, very helpful to us, noted this when he assisted us to our room.
I will say that the highlight of this hotel was Joe, who helped us with luggage and suggestions. Came by himself to give us more coffee and sugar packets late at night.
In a hotel that clearly would like to be known as a little upscale (look around a pleasant lobby) stinting on room and staff does not help the reputation.
