“The breakfast makes it awesome”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Interesting hotel, obviously a former condo complex. The restaurant next door is open to anyone, but FREE for guests! That's enough to make me a frequent guest. After all the boring hotel breakfasts I see all year (I travel 150 nights/year), the breakfast here is a welcome treat.

Housekeeping and maintenance people were all kind, but the front desk was kind of clueless and difficult to communicate with. Rooms are fine, the deadbolt on my door was removed, but hoping that's been fixed.

Another thing about the breakfast - the staff are cheerful, do anything to help, type of people. Starts your day off great! I'd eat there even if I was staying somewhere different.

Room Tip: Rooms are hard to find. Don't listen to front desk, just enter the first door and walk until yo...

the staff at the front was friendly when I checked in that night.The rooms were fine.The hotel looks like its an older hotel. Much to my suprise they had a bar on site. The breakfast was good. It was a breakfast buffet. My only complaint was that I was on second floor but they don't have any elevators.

Room we had reserved was a King suite. It was very dirty, smelled, and set way in the back of the hotel and very creepy back there. They switched us to a regular room, but did not change the price. Told us the price we booke the King suite for should have not been that price???
Second room was better - except when I went to plug in my phone for the night - we looked behind the bed and the outlet had too many things plugged in and it had melted off the wall!! The shower was also not working the greatests. The front desk gal was wonderful, though. Didn't have a phone book in room or a restaurant guide, but she found a phone book and ran in right down. (have pictures of the wall outlet - room 136) When we checked out, I told the front desk about the wall outlet, they gave me the card of the General Manager, Wayne Slavit, and was told he would call me or e-mail me that day. Have never heard from him.

Room Tip: Don't pick the rooms around back - very creepy!! Would not feel safe at all!!

Rooms were dirty beyond dirty I was ask to move to another room when the attendant went to check it out she stated under the bed was a shoe and a tshirt. Under the bed here was so much trash and the toilet seat was burned I feel like I'm in crack alley drug hotel. Online the reviews are okay but in reality the place is a dump. OMG I was so afraid to shower I'm up right now awaiting checkout so I can move to Marriott. It's cheap and you will know it. I have my grand daughter with me oh before I forget the toilet look as if it had urine on it. I'm truly getting sick being in here. Don't ever stay here. One good thing the front desk her name was Rico she was very nice and tried to please me. One other attendant came to my room a youngman said he would move me he never came back. Lol lol what a joke this place.

Positive:
- affordable price, in the low range of Clarion class, rooms are quite nice with limited renovation, especially beds and some modern decor. Free internet is always nice.
- Hot breakfast is good too.

Negative:
- Limited renovation includes lobby area and interior of the room. Hotel building is pretty much worn out and looks like low income apartment complex. In fact, there are similar buildings outside this hotel and they look exactly the same.

Excellent staff--if we encountered any problems, they were quickly remedied. Hotel provided great access to local venues and eateries. I liked that they had a weight room I could use at any time. We did not have a chance to use the pool because of weather. Perhaps on a future trip!

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony. Wonderful to spend evenings and mornings out there :o)
