When I walked into the hotel, I immediately noticed the soiled carpets near the lobby. I figure that the public areas of a hotel can tell you a lot about the condition of their rooms. I was about ready to walk out when I met a couple who said the rooms were decent. Since I didn't feel like checking out other hotels, I decided to take a room.
The couple was right. The room was decent and clean, if somewhat dated and worn.
I mentioned to the desk clerk that the Holiday Inn Express that I had stayed in the previous night had large LCD T.V.'s. The clerk said that the hotel would be getting them soon. I suspect that this hotel is scheduled for renovation soon.
I noticed that there was an unusual amount of flex in the floor of my room. I could hear the person above me walking around and I don't think he was particularly heavy footed. Other than that, the hotel was quiet. It is located away from any major roadway.
Breakfast the next morning was about average. The breakfast area was crowded and the staff didn't open an adjoining dining area until people were milling around looking for places to sit. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and helpful.
All-in-all, the stay was acceptable, if not exceptional.
