In my first review of the hotel I rated them a 1 rating but should have been a 4 rating. This hotel was a nice surprise for the price. Loved the people that worked there and wouldn't want this cause them any problems.

We arrived late and were unsure of the neighborhood. The very nice desk person gave us a room with two queen beds that was located away from parking and near the pool. The pool was closed. Room was pleasant. Beds were good. Very quite. The breakfast was a very basic cold continental. Hotel is very convenient to the hospital and within walking distance of a small cafe. Accepts pets.

Room Tip: Freeway noise may be a problem. Try to get the room directly behind the office.

Just perfect. Very convenient, especially if you're not driving. 66 bus stops right in front. Nearby Milton's Diner is open late, cheap, friendly, and casual. Hotel staff was super nice and very helpful with local tips. Warm, clean room, with amazingly comfy, huge bed. Great for fatties!! I even used the pool. It wasn't heated, oh well. Coffee, danishes, and cereal were very helpful in the morning. Walkable from the Greyhound/ Train station and very convenient for the airport. Airport bus stops nearby and/ or cab just jumps right onto I-25. This hotel is a wonderful, great value treat. Stop looking and book this place now!

Myself and my partner stayed here for a week whilst traveling around the states, for the price that we paid we were very happy with what we got. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and tidy. We stayed in a king size room with a fridge and microwave which was very comfortable and we were opposite a cute church. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel giving access to downtown or old town (bus number 66).
The only thing that i could say was wrong was that the hotel is next to a interstate, however this did not affect us in any way and we would definitely go back to this hotel.

Pros - rooms were clean and comfortable, staff were friendly. Very close to downtown.

Cons - they have a huge sign outside saying 'free high-speed wi-fi', but the internet was barely detectable, let alone usable, and not even almost 'high-speed'. The hotel next door and the restaurant three doors down were easier to connect to. I was woken up by cleaners on both nights I was there. Swimming pool was closed and covered, despite it being stinking hot.

Overall, it was okay.

I booked online and was pleasantly surprised. It is great for those who do not want to spend a fortune on a room. It is simple and clean. Does not include refridgerator or coffee maker but that was okay for the price. Free breakfast is not much but there are many places near by for a meal. The area was safe and pretty quiet. Friendly staff was very helpful. Great for the price.
