First of all, this is not a luxury hotel or a business-class hotel. But if you have reasonable expectations, it is a good alternative to a regular hotel room - particularly if you're staying for an extended period of time.
I stayed here for a month when i was relocating to the area. The hotel as a whole is in relatively good condition. Nothing fancy, but reasonably clean and updated. The rooms themselves are about the size of a regular hotel room, with a queen bed, reclining chair, desk/table, and a kitchenette. The kitchenette has a 2 burner stove, dishwasher, microwave, and full-size refrigerator. It is stocked with basic dishes and utensils.
One clarification - the rooms are not "suites" in the traditional sense, in that there is not a seperate bedroom and living area. It's basically a standard hotel room with a kitchenette. They may have some larger suites in the hotel, but a standard room is going to be what i described. Regardless, i found it sufficient - the kitchenette was the main reason i stayed here. My only complaint about the rooms is that the carpets are pretty old and really need to be replaced. Otherwise, i found everything to be fine.
One warning - this is a 3 story high wood-framed building. The floors are not concrete. If you are on the first or second floor and have someone above you, you are probably going to hear them walking around. That may or may not bother you. If you stay on the 3rd floor, it won't be a problem but half of the 3rd floor is smoking so that could be an issue, even if you are in the non-smoking half. Otherwise, i didn't hear any noise at all from anyone in the building. Unlike other "extended stay" hotels i've been in, the walls here seemed pretty well noise-insulated.
Overall, this is a good alternative if you want the amenities of an apartment without the cost of corporate housing or higher-end suite hotels. I reserved through hotwire and paid less than half of what it would have cost to stay in the residence inn or some of the other hotels in the area. That being said, you get what you pay for and this is not a fancy hotel. it's bare-bones but clean and quiet and that's all i was looking for.
