Good, clean location with a nice staff where you can walk to almost anything but it is NOISY!! During "normal sleeping hours" you can hear the cars outside (even on a higher floor). The room air/heat was a constant racket (and did not keep it very cold even on the highest settings) along with the slamming of room doors, especially in the morning. We originally thought it a nice security feature that you had to have your room key to get in the hotel from the main street entrance but we found that people would let you in and no one from staff was paying any attention to either entrance so it made us wonder how safe it really was?!?!? Breakfast is included, waffles, eggs, meat, fruit, etc. which was good. They recommended a cab service, Capital City Cab, which we used to go anywhere not within walking distance. We would recommend them as well. The TV's are old and have few channels with a good picture.
