I stayed here while attending a 2-day course at the university. I didn't want to stay at the hotel on campus due to the price but this one was nearby and very reasonably priced. The place looks fairly new and everything is in good condition. The AC keeps the room at a decent temperature as long as you turn the fan from "on" to "auto". Included with the room is a free breakfast at the restaurant across the driveway. It's nothing fancy but is a warm, freshly cooked meal of either eggs, pancakes, waffles, or some combination thereof. The restaurant also has a lounge which I didn't go to and never heard a noise from.
The only downsides (although my rating of 5 shows how minor I found them):
- The rooms are very dark. The only large window is out onto the outside patio/walkway and is under an overhang, so not much light gets in. Also, because it leads out into the walkway I wanted to keep the curtains closed
- It is a little bit loud, with the occasional noise from the road and a nearby train. I would say though that the road noise is similar to most other restaurants and the train is fairly infrequent.
- If going to the university, it is a bit of a walk, about 20 minutes until you reach the edge of campus (I'm not a slow walker)
- I didn't explored too much but it didn't look like there is much in the way of food around the hotel except for their own restaurant, certainly not any of the major chains.
