I stayed at Essex Inn because I was attending a conference taking place at the Hilton next door. I was only attending the conference for one day but I must say when I arrived at this hotel, I almost turned right back around. The only reason that I did not was because it was pre-paid. The pictures on their website make this place look much better than it was. The front of the hotel is no frills at all and the rooms are the same. My room was so small and cramped that I could barely put the ironing board up in it. The restaurant was closed and the continental breakfast they offered was awful! If you want a very basic place to stay, this could be acceptable but I was very disappointed after seeing the pictures and the description online. I would not stay here again.
