I feel bad whenever I give a bad rating to a business that's "past it's prime" because I appreciate how much effort must go in to upkeep, as well as how hard it is to compete with newly built places.
That said, if the primary objective is for travelers to use their dollars wisely, I have to recommend against staying here. On the upside, our check-in went smoothly, our experience with staff was positive, and we didn't see anything particularly "dirty". The breakfast offering was comparable to other hotels in this category.
The elevator is very basic, almost pure utility. The hallways and rooms are much the same. There was a bit of peeling wallpaper, and the room generally had a 'dingy' feel. The bathroom layout is terrible, especially for two people. The internet was, as others have reported, less than ideal. I measured it at 1.5mb up/download; by today's standards, that's unacceptable.
We paid ~$100/night, and I have to imagine there are better options for similar prices in the area.
One last note--the address provided by Marriott does NOT work in iPhone's GPS, so be sure to check where you're going first.
