This place is definitely good value for the price. The rooms are well cleaned not just supplied with new linens (I saw one of the housekeepers dusting in a room across the hall).
The beds only have two pillows on them so if you are with somebody and are like me and sleep with more than one pillow bring an extra; it may be possible to ask for an extra though I didn't try.
The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. However, the lobby closes at 11 pm and is closed all night.
The breakfast was definitely above par for your included continental breakfast; it had fresh homemade cinnamon rolls as well as biscuits and gravy that were personally some of the best I have ever had.
The only one negative I have to say about this hotel is that they still use the old fashion metal keys for their rooms instead of the credit card style ones in almost all other hotels. I really didn't like this aspect of the hotel because you are forced to carry around a metal key with a giant plastic keychain on it everywhere you go. There is a 5 dollar lost key fee if you don't keep track of the keys they give you at all times. I also feel like there is an element of security that is lost with the old keys because if somebody before you keeps their key they now have a key to your room (I would be surprised if they change out the locks every time a key goes missing, $5 doesn't seem to be enough to cover that expense). Also, if you lose your keys after 11pm or lock yourself out of your room accidentally there is no way to get into your room as the lobby is closed and locked up and you will have to pay for a night at another hotel unless you can come up with a better solution. If it weren't for this one negative I would have given them 5 stars.
All-in-all, I do recommend this hotel.
