This is the second time I have stayed at this location. The price per night increased, but the improvements made since my last stay justify the cost. The best part of this lodging is the double room suite. One room has a king size bed with a refrigerator, sink, and microwave. The other room has two double beds. The rooms are connected by a bathroom, which separates the sink in one room from the shower and toilet in the other. This makes it easy for one to be using the sink while another is taking a shower undisturbed. Another outstanding feature of this hotel is the cleanliness. One can tell there is pride in the cleaning of this establishment. The upgrades since our first stay included new beds, down blankets, soft/firm pillows, and decorations throughout. The hotel's appearance upon our first visit would have been described as a dormitory. The management has softened the edges and warmed up the tone with vases, paintings, and other decorative adornments. Included in the price is a continental breakfast and small workout room. Overall the stay was a good value.
