When we first booked, I as very surprised to learn that the rooms had either a queen or 2 twin beds! I've never seen that in hotel like this. However, when I arrived I realized that the rooms are not big enough to accommodate 2 doubles, so I guess having the 2 twins at least presents an option. It makes things difficult if you are travelling with children. My boyfriend and I went with his daughter. We asked for a cot when we booked, but they were already all taken. (There was an event going on in the area which brought a lot of families and children there, so I assume this wouldn't always be the case!). In the end, we did get a cot.
The woman working at the front desk was pleasant and helpful (Jennifer, I think). However, we weren't told about the continental breakfast, or where and when it was available. We were surprised when we went down in the morning to get coffee and saw others eating! But it was welcome. The breakfast was basic, similar to what you'd get at other hotels in this price range. I thought the $89 per night was pretty standard for this kind of hotel.
I am quite sensitive to noise and the slightest smell of cigarette smoke, and experienced neither. I didn't find the bed very comfortable, but my boyfriend did. So I guess it's a matter of choice. I didn't like that the sink is outside of the bathroom. I prefer bathroom and sink to be in the same room, and not on a carpeted floor. The shower was roomy for a shower stall, and had good water pressure.
Overall, a pleasant stay for the night, but it wouldn't be my first choice if I had to stay several nights, or if I was travelling with children.
