I spent six nights at this hotel. During previous visits to the area, I have stayed at both HI-X and a Comfort Suites. I decided to try this hotel after doing some on-line research. The price was about $15.00 less per day than the neighboring competition with a few shortcomings that I wasn't really interested in ( no pool, no comp b-fast ). There was a large hot tub in the central courtyard, which was out of order. I actually appreciated this since I imagine the noise would have been intolerable. The room was clean. The service was very good, and everything in the room functioned well. The room came with a small kitchen area, fridge and prep and eating utensils. The bed was very comfortable and the A/C unit worked well.
There were a few negative aspects to the hotel. The most notable was the hard quarry tile floors in all common areas. I'm sure this type of flooring is easier to maintain than carpeting, but the noise is constant if anything moves past your room. The door to the room was poor fitting which increased the level of any outside noise. The creaking floor noise from people above was very noticeable. There was an interesting occurence which happened on the only Saturday night I stayed there: it seemed that the hotel occupancy jumped by 50%, and most of them were very loud and young adults. I always sleep with earplugs, but the noise was still a problem.
I would recommend this hotel with a warning that it's not a hotel for relaxing in your room. It is geared to the business or pleasure traveler that is budget oriented. I would also mention that some of their TV's are the smallest I've seen (19").
