Because of delays in my trip back to FL, I had to rearrange reservations and wound up staying at this hotel. The desk clerk on duty could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Besides the normal check-in procedures, she answered all my questions about the area and suggested several local restaurants (we chose one and it was very good).
The hotel was a typical HIE- nice rooms with all the necessary amenities. The room and bath were clean and well-supplied and normal bedbug checks revealed no visitors. I had asked for a room near the front due to mobility problems and got the first room from the lobby but there was no noise or disturbances to be heard all night. My standard complaint is: not enough plugs for the phone, computer, bipap (especially near the bed where there are plugs hidden behind the bed and filled with lamps and clocks). One other complaint was about the breakfast which was really quite good but all the milk was outdated...not good for a very nice establishment. The comment from the breakfast service was "milk is good for 4-5 days beyond the date"! I was happy to hear from management that they would not have put it out but food service is contracted out.
