When I pulled into the parking lot, I have to admit, I was a little concerned about the area, especially as a woman staying here alone. I was expecting to be right next to the Fair & Expo Center, but that isn't really the case (my fault for not looking at the map). It's actually a couple of miles down the highway. But my stay ended up being very pleasant. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet - that's all I needed. It was obvious the description about the recently renovated rooms was accurate. The refrigerator makes a bit too much noise when it's cycling, but I didn't hear the highway nearby, nor the other guests, which all seemed to be construction workers and truckers. Everyone I encountered at the front desk was very nice and helpful, and they offer free coffee in the lobby as well as a coffee maker in the "deluxe" rooms. Again, the neighborhood may put you off at first sight, but it turned out to be convenient, with a gas station and restaurants right next door and down the street, and easy access to the highway. For the price, I would definitely stay here again.
