This is not the fanciest of hotels but it is very good where it counts - customer service, cleanliness and price. Perhaps the decor is a little dated but if you're looking for a decent place to stay at a low cost, this fits the bill. In particular, we liked that they allow dogs with a refundable deposit.
The front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived very early (9:30am) for our check in and, understandably, there were no rooms ready. But we told the woman at the front desk that we would go get some breakfast and she said she would call us as soon as rooms became available (we were traveling with another couple so we had two rooms booked). Within an hour she called us and said that she had asked the housekeeping staff to turn around two rooms as quickly as possible, and they did! So we got to check in early, which was great.
The rooms are very spacious - actually bigger than my first apartment! Our room had a full size eat-in kitchen with dishes and utensils and a full-sized fridge and dishwasher. It had a nice little "living room" area with a sofa bed and tv, and a separate bedroom also with a tv. The bathroom was large and clean. The bed was comfortable as well
We were there with our dog and at check out the front desk person went back to the room with us to do a quick check and our deposit was returned to us in full. Everyone was really nice and accommodating.
There is also a nice sitting area in the lobby and coffee and donuts and fruit in the morning. It's not the Four Seasons but overall we would say that, for the price, the Handy Suites are a perfectly fine place to stay and we would definitely stay there again!
