“Average, but affordable”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This hotel is a bit away from the I-5, so tends to be quiet. The rooms are adequate,except for the king bed rooms, which are small and not very private. Breakfast is fine and basic, but can be a bit awkward when there are many guests. The coffee is definitely to weak : black water.
Owners, however are polite and accomodating.

Room Tip: Avoid the king bed rooms: to small and not private.

I stayed here for three weeks while waiting for my apartment to become available. I couldn't be happier with the place. The management are very attentive to details and the customer experience. They keep the place so tidy. And they are ongoingly making improvements. The room was very clean as well and the managers were happy to adjust room assignments based on preferences, such as wanting to be near an exit or wanting to be on the second floor.

It is also really handy that the fitness center is open all hours and that there are some many parking options and exits.

The hotel is very conveniently located for accessing downtown and the capital.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great value on a place to stay!
