What we liked most of all was the reasonable price.
2nd best thing was that it was relatively quiet. Even though we had a room facing the interstate.
the windows were new and the traffic noise was low. We also heard next to nothing from other parts of the hotel. quiet is a rare commodity even in much fancier hotels.
We had originally booked at the HI Express and cancelled because of the noise complaints posted on TA, plus the ABVI was $50 a night cheaper
the room was ok. the bed comfy and we appreciated having a fridge microwave in the room.
Flat screen tv with good selection of channels.
The breakfast was ok. There were two hot choices. make your own hot waffles and the sausage gravy with biscuits. the rest was standard fair: fruit,cereal, juice, coffee.
Now for the not so likeables.
There was no closet per say, just a rickety upright freestanding wardrobe.
The decor on one of the walls was a little odd, Purplish colored painted stucco. (1980's style) We had a first floor room overlooking the front parking and interstate. the windows had basic window locks on them and there were cars parked 6 feet away. granted it would involve crawling through the hedges but still discomforting. plus there was no safe in the room. But there was no mention of any crime issues from other reviews, so we let it go
the sink was immediately aside the entry door when you enter the room. it is also directly outside the bathroom door and the door swung out which meant any one standing at the sink had to get out of the way for another to get into the bathroom. Most hotels have a bathroom door that swings in.
