First of all, my room was spectacular, a King bed with flat screen, couch, desk, microwave and fridge at a reasonable price. The room has obviously been recently remodeled and was in great shape. My room was motor inn style with no balcony (only door opens outside) which they can't help but it was a bit inconvenient when trekking to breakfast in ice and snow. But as I said, not much they can do about that.
There are some opportunities for improvement.
It is really nice they offer a hot breakfast with biscuits, gravy, oatmeal, toast, etc. They do have scrambled eggs which were flat, breakfast sandwich style and hard boiled eggs as well. But, no protein. If I were improving, I'd add sausage links or bacon or both and do a true scrambled egg and bam! another bubble.
I booked this trip based on the close proximity to the new LeConte convention center. I could quite literally make a snowball and hit it from just outside my room, yet it's about a 20 minute walk to get there. If I were the owner, I'd be working with my neighbors and the city to install a foot bridge across the river. To be fair, they were very up front in their advertising about their location. I mention it here for information and to pass it on to management. No bubbles deducted.
