Arrived a little early but my room was ready, which was nice. I walked around the property and checked out the room. The place is basically two strips of connected rooms running perpendicular to the street, a few blocks out of the downtown area. Nice and quiet, partly because I was almost the only one staying there. The room was super clean, nice new tile bathroom, huge comfy bed. A couple of caveats: there's no dresser or clothes hangers for the armoire they do provide, so if you like to unpack (which I do) you have to just pile your stuff at the bottom of the armoire. Also the towels are your basic Motel 6 type, small and scratchy. And the bathroom window has a couple of bullet holes in it.. not entirely reassuring. But there's a sweet little table with a wine opener and glasses on it, and a fridge and microwave and TV. When I asked about breakfast the guy at the desk said they didn't provide one. I asked him to recommend a place and he suggested an Italian place down the street, which is where I had breakfast the next day. When I went to check out in the morning there was no one at the desk, so I just left my key. I think for the price it could be a little more upscale: better lighting in the room, newer towels, better quality air conditioner (this was the clanky old under-the-window type) and maybe a little more attention to detail. Comfortable chairs to sit in outside the rooms would be nice, and fresh flowers in the rooms for arriving guests. The Holiday Inn Express has better pricing and more amenities. Just saying.
