This hotel is not downtown, but on the 'outside' of the tunnel on Tunnel Road. Most will access it from Interstate 240, and from there is can be a little tough to find. Access is from a traffic light on Tunnel, and there is only a small sign at the turn that is shared with the Cracker Barrel and Outback restaurants. It's one of those situations where you can easily see the hotel but not the access! That being said, this was one of the better HI hotels I've stayed with. The whole facility was in good shape, clean, and bright. There is a restaurant and lounge in the lobby, with an outdoor deck off the back. There is a small indoor/outdoor pool with very limited seating. Parking is shoe-horned into the terrain, with the most accessible being under the hotel itself with elevator access that requires a room key.
All the amenities in the room (HVHC, microwave, fridge, etc.) worked well, there is a good selection of TV channels, and housekeeping was excellent.
