As budget hotels go, this place is great. The staff is very professional and friendly. The breakfast is a couple of cuts above--with eggs and bacon and pancakes and everything else. The room was impeccably clean, and well appointed.The sofa bed was not made up, but they sent someone right away to do so. The comfort of the sofa bed was just okay, but sofa beds usually are. The bathroom was spacious and clean.
Only glitches: drain was stopped up, stopper didn't work so had to pull it out manually, and the shower curtain didn't block the water from going on the floor. I told the staff about these and they were very apologetic. Didn't tell them til next day (we only stayed one day), but I think if we would have told them earlier they would have fixed right away.
Other cool thing about this hotel is it's only one mile from the mall.
