Well, I stayed there for 5 nights and still not sure what to think, of course spacious room with jacuzzi but some small, big things to mention...
First I walked in the room, I thought "OMG, 5 nights in this "hole"..." Dont get me wrong, room was clean, no roaches but all the furnishings makes you feel not happy.
Very big refrigerator... but totally misquided (almost in the middle of the room...) and absolutely not fitting in the room (big white refrigerator and brown furniture) make you feel like in a cheap motel in 80ies. I'm sure there are so many non-expensive possibilities to place it right and make the room look nicer.
Jacuzzi is working but not really good in shape and clean.
Shower head totally limed... with a bit more cleaning it will not happen...
Table telephone was not working well, also not clean and outdated.
"Business center" with outdated and worn out display and keyboard, also pc setting are very dangerous - not sure if choosed by hotel staff or guest - storaging all passwords you type unless you delete them by yourself while log out... be careful!
All in one... this hotel has potential:
wonderful location, almost in downtown, free parking, quiet (not highway hotel), and I guess unbeatable prices for a 3star SJ hotel.
with some small changes it would look even much better - refrigerators in right place, it won't cost you any money, or even better put it in a wardrope like in other 3stars hotel, and would recommend to get some insperations from other 3star chain hotels.
Also try to keep your rooms more clean: clean shower heads, jacuzzi.
Good 3 points.
