I stayed for two nights. On the positive side: very convenient location to walk downtown; large room; clean rooms; and comfortable.
On the other hand: Staff was not at all welcoming. Checking in felt like nothing more than a transaction. Checking out was even colder - no "thank you for staying" or "how was your stay". I almost felt like I was bothering them!
The exterior common areas could use some cleaning, especially the corridors where you catch the elevator.
I have to laugh about the other posting about all of the rules. I started counting how many signs there are telling you very bluntly what not to do (the elevator had 4 or 5 signs alone!) It almost makes you feel like you are not welcome. The worst are all of the signs in the breakfast room that more or less threaten you should you walk out of the room with any food. Other reviewers complain about the breakfast, but I found it good enough - plenty to choose from.
It is a budget hotel. If I returned to the area and wanted a budget hotel, I would probably look to other choices instead - someplace that feels more welcoming. I just can't recommend it here.
