The hotel itself is nice enough, located right next to the overpass that leads to UK. I know this because if I opened the drapes on my window I could see the kids walking to and from classes/exams ... and they could see me. Not ideal privacy ...
Everyone who worked there was very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was okay, though it would be nice if they offered some eggs without the slice of Kraft singles oozing out of the middle for those who do not want that with their morning meal. Though I didn't use it the pancake machine was an interesting contraption.
The bed was comfy enough, the shower had good water pressure, the room was certainly roomy enough. But the walls are thin. So are the ceilings. We could hear everything in the hallway, from our neighbors and from above. Nice to know those above me showered before breakfast? For $130 a night I feel like we could have gotten a little better.
