Overall very good value; if you have the flexibility to stay outside of the downtown core, you can stretch your dollar here and still get a good night's rest. As others have noted, the exterior is fairly modest but they have made a real effort to upgrade the rooms. Beds are very comfortable and the linens are crisp white cotton (no polyester bedspreads here). Lots of fluffy white towels and the terry robes are a nice touch normally found only in higher-end hotels. Mini-fridge is handy. Bathroom is nice (although small). Traffic noise was not noticeable at all. Location is fairly handy to the university but less so to downtown (if you have a car, you'll be fine; taxi ride is about 10 minutes; and there is a city bus that takes about 25 minutes to the core).
Room for improvement: use better lighting around the vanity/sink area; a small desk with chair would be welcome; breakfast is included but more fruit would be appreciated (bananas only the morning I was there); shower needs a safety bar or non-slip (textured) floor.
