We stayed here for a business trip over a Thursday and Friday night. Check in was smooth, Josh was helpful and friendly. The first room we were placed in reeked of cigarette smoke. After reporting this to the front desk, we were moved to another room. The room was OK, but initially the bathroom smelled of cigarette smoke. I suppose this was because someone was smoking in an adjacent room, because the smell was intermittent. We were in a king suite, so the room was a little larger. We had a kitchenette area with a microwave and small fridge. The bed was probably the best part, very comfortable. The hallway outside our room smelled musty. Breakfast was complimentary and was average. Overall, I give this hotel 3 stars. While mostly clean with friendly staff, the smoking stuff was a major drawback , and for the money, a Hampton would have probably satisfied me more.
