Stayed here for 3 nights when I went for my Yosemite trip, "paid" with points so it was dirt cheap (e.g. whatever you spend in the bar). National Park is about 1-1.5 hours drive away, so not perfect but there's really no other chain hotel (that I have points with) any closer. Hotel is places just next to a highway so if you're unlucky you might hear it (I got the room facing other way).
Room is spacious (probably typically for US), big bed, flat TV (few HD channels), bathroom is also big - although bathtub is very shallow (to stand in only), and there's this curtain preventing flooding. Why not glass, why, why? Curtains are so disgusting.
Free WiFi is available, although very slow. If you get 60 kb/s - you're really lucky.
There's a small fridge but too small for, say, a big bottle of water. No microwave in the room, there is one available in the lobby.
There's a bistro bar next to the reception, you can order some small food orders there (from soup to sandwiches to pizza, but don't expect steak or fish), also bottled beer and wine. Staff is friendly and nice. Prices? Well, it's a hotel. If you want to keep the price down, there's a restaurant on the corner, about 3-4 minutes walk.
Oh yeah, elevators are SLOW. Use the stairs.
Overall - not a bad hotel, but nothing special either. HD was nice (pity only ESPN and some news channels, not movie ones), WiFi was not so nice (way too slow). Location - good for my needs. Would stay again if I'd happen to be in the area.
