This is literally right next to the freeway, so it's a convenient location but maybe some of the rooms next to the freeway side might be noisy. Our room was actually very quiet; could not hear the highway noise at all but we were on the other side facing away from the freeway so maybe you might want to ask for that when checking in. The room size was decent. The hotel is very small, which is actually nice so at least it's not overcrowded with people. The breakfast area seemed a little bit small but if you go real early there aren't a lot of people so it's nice and quiet. I agree with someone else who said the automatic pancake machine was nice, however, I wish it would've given an option if you only wanted one pancake vs two. The shower was very noisy; made an awful screechy noise and it wasn't just ours because we could hear it when the neighbors would take a shower also. Didn't like that there was no side entrance because it's kinda awkward to parade all of ours things through the lobby when checking in or out. Wasn't really that big of a deal, just a personal preference to be able to go through a side entrance with a key card or something. Also, didn't like having to walk by the smokers in front of the entrance. Maybe the smoking area should be off to the side of the building instead. I think the rooms are all supposed to be non-smoking but we smelled someone smoking in their room. The staff seemed nice enough, so overall it's a nice little hotel.
