Overall this hotel is average. We stayed in an extended stay room, which is described on the website as having a separate sitting area and a private bedroom. We were a little surprised when we saw our room, which was really just a standard room with a sleep sofa—no separate sitting area or private bedroom. The room also had a mini refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker but there were no outlets to plug them into. We had to move the microwave to the other side of the room and place it on the floor to use it—bizarre!
The breakfast was good, though on a busy weekend in October (hotel was sold out) they should have had more than one person working it. At one point they were out of juice, coffee, and eggs, and there was no way one person could keep up with the demand of so many guests.
The hotel is supposed to be nonsmoking, but the entire building reeked of smoke. We would probably stay there again, but mainly because it’s one of the few pet friendly hotels in the area.
