We had mixed feelings about this place, but would go back. We found it in the HotelCoupons.com book and all we needed was a basic room in which to stay on our way back to Southern Oregon from Northern Idaho. We got a basic room with the coupon for $49 plus tax which when we thought about it was quite a bargain. One of the really good things about it was the location several blocks from the freeway and there was absolutly no traffic noise! The front desk clerk who checked us in was more than pleasant so that was nice. Our room was quite large, had a microwave and a refrigerator which is something we needed as we heat our own pre-made meals while traveling. There was free wi-fi. The hotel had a pool and spa which we did not use, but it appeared to be quite nice. The bathroom was a good size, but parts of the ceiling over the tub were peeling pretty badly and I was hoping it wouldn't fall on me as I was showering. The shower stream was very good. The "hot" breakfast was basic- there was an electric skillet full of sausage links which didn't look totally cooked, orange and apple juice, coffee, cold cereal plus hot cereal packets to microwave but only styrofoam bowls in which to microwave them. There was a limited selection of bagels and bread to toast, butter, jelly and cream cheese and that was about it. There was no fresh fruit. We took some juice and heated up our own muffins and a couple of other things we had in our cooler and had a much better breakfast than what they offered. The coupon said there was a daily paper, but we arrived on a Thursday and left Friday and the available paper both days was the pervious Tuesday's. I asked about a current paper, and the early morning front dest clerk said something to the effect that they get them sporadically. I think the carpets (both in the hallways and in the rooms) could use a good cleaning and it's time for some refurbishing for the entire property, but for $49 a night there really wasn't too much to complain about. I would stay there again.
