On par with most decent hotels, this wasn't lacking in any particular
area, nor shone extra brightly in any either. The room was clean, the
bathroom was clean, the beds were comfortable and gave a good night's
rest. The location is near the Roman Catholic Cathedral (within walking
distance) and you can get right on the highway. But it's not located in an
overly scenic part of town. The hotel parking lot entrance was hard to see
the first time we entered, it shares a very large lot with another
business but there is no cross over area so we had to circle out on the
road quick. The view from our "back side" room was only the roof area -
which wasn't a problem as we weren't there to see the hotel; although my
parents had a great view of the cathedral from the front side of the
hotel. There was no discernable noise from the road or outside in our
room, it was quiet. The general condition and age of the building is good
and it seems everything is kept in pretty good condition.
The pool area is indoor. The pool is spacious enough for a large group and
fine for lap swimming. The room doesn't have a lot of windows so there is
not a lot of sunlight and there are not a lot of internal lights so the
room seemed "dim".
The restaurant area in the hotel was very understaffed, one morning no
waiters showed up for work and there was no breakfast in the hotel. We
found a good restaurant after driving, but if our schedule had been tight
we would not have had time to search the area for a place to eat. I won't
ding them much on service since it's likely to not happen that often.
