First..the Service- It was excellent - they are very helpful and courteous- Value- An average price and parking was free- Sleep Quality- We normally went to bed late- the bed was comfortable and the air conditioning was excellent, great flat TV. The room and surroundings were very clean. Location- It is very central- you have immediate access to I-95 , which will take you anywhere- there is a BJs warehouse, Chillis restaurant, wal-mart very ,very close by; however the neighborhood is not good to walk about. There is a train crossing very,very close and you will its horn every time it comes by, between 7am and 11pm...it did not bother us because we went out and came back late....but for some people it might if you tend to snap during the day. I will definitely stay here again when I come back down there.
