Stayed here in August 2012 on my way through PA. Won for a very good rate through Priceline. I definitely wouldn't pay the full rate to stay here, but for the killer deal I got from PL, it was a great value. Check in/front desk staff was very courteous, with the receptionist taking the time to explain where the gym, restaurant, etc. were and the respective operating hours.
The bed was really comfortable, but I found noise from the A/C and hallway to be loud. People: don't let your kids run up and down the hallway at midnight. It's just rude.
Wifi was free. Finally, a hotel that got it right! There were also computers in the lobby for public use. The amenities in the room were good, but I was surprised to see they use plastic cups in the bathroom and the room didn't have a minibar.
Just behind the hotel you'll find a few shops and places to eat, including Target, JC Penney, Chili's, Friendly's, and Moe's. I decided to eat at the "Dog and Pony" -- the restaurant in the hotel. Service was excellent. I had the Nicoise salad, which included Ahi tuna ($12). Presentation was lovely, but the tomatoes were hard and the fish wasn't seasoned at all which was a disappointment. Lots of salt and pepper did the trick. I overhead people raving about some of the other dishes, so maybe I didn't order the right thing...
Overall, for a one night stay, I was completely satisfied with the hotel and found the staff to be very welcoming. I travel a lot, so I wouldn't go as far as other reviewers to say it's a "lovely hotel" or "couldn't be better," but it sufficed for a night.
