We got this hotel through hotwire for $49 so we weren't sure what to expect. As it turns out, we enjoyed our stay here thoroughly. We were especially nervous after reading some of the reviews on here but were pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was.
The breakfast buffet for $4.95 is a bit of a rip off. It was scrambled eggs, crusty bacon, and dried up sausages. Most hotels would have given it away for free. Skip it and go downtown to a Denny's or something...
The staff at the front desk were friendly when they were there... It seemed like whenever we needed something they were in some office on the computer (facebooking would be my guess) and it took a lot to get their attention but once you got them they were very helpful.
All in all it was a great value and we will most likely be going back there again as it really is conveniently located to a lot of great downtown places. It might take you 20 minutes to walk downtown if you're 90 and crippled otherwise everything was within a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive...
