We chose this hotel based on the many good reviews around the place. For the star rating (which varies between 2 stars and 3 stars depending on the website...) it has plenty of great features - free breakfast, friendly staff, free parking and wifi, pool, fridge, a TV with 100's of channels, although many of which are subscription-based. We thought that we'd done pretty well for ourselves. If you're not looking to sleep in late each day, I can recommend this inn as pretty good value, even if it's a little dated.
However, there is a serious noise issue that becomes apparent come morning. The plumbing is deafening, running right by the bed and exploding every time anyone nearby uses a tap. Footsteps from the rooms above sound as though someone is walking around in your room. Noise deadening from the thoroughfar outside is almost non-existent, so you'll hear every discussion and remote-locking car horn. In all, it was impossible to sleep past about 6am, and given that we had returned from a friend's bachelor party at 3am, we were pretty grumpy - so much so that we left and spent the rest of our time at a different hotel. Come to think of it, with the noise that the plumbing makes, we probably woke up the whole complex when we had our showers at 3am. Sorry guys.
Another note for guests with kids - the adult channels are subscription-based, but that doesn't block the unimaginative porno names in the guide...
