This is quite an average hotel with large rooms. It would be below average if the rooms were smaller and the if the bed was not so comfortable. The check in clerk was very friendly and helpful. Those are the three positives.
Here is the rest of the story. There is no (zero) counter space in the bathroom. You can balance your stuff on the toilet tank top, if you move the tissue box and towels. But there is no place to put them, except in the kitchen. There is no shelf in the shower for shampoo or soap. Not even a teeny tiny shelf. The shower is very gentle. Very gentle. Perhaps that is a requirement for a low flow shower head, but it is slow! Apparently it was enough water for the previous guest to wash her hair and leave some on the shower floor.
The breakfast was mediocre. Maybe they rotate menus, but today they had biscuits and gravy. No eggs, (except cold hard boiled eggs in the cooler), no bacon, no sausage. The juice, bagels, bread, and waffles looked good, but in my humble opinion eggs are part of a hot breakfast. Speaking of hot: the coffee was not! I had to put it into the microwave for 45 seconds, just to make it drinkable. I finished that cup and a new pot was brought out. Still not hot.
Wow! Now that I put all of this into writing, I wonder why I gave it three stars! Oh yeah, the bed was great and had five pillows. The downtown location is handy for many functions, but it is not handy to I-94 at all. The staff is very friendly.
