The hotel itself wasn't too difficult to find, although it doesn't look like your typical lodging. Parking was limited to a rear lot that shared spaces with the 7-11 and bank next door. Only one entry on the side of the building furthest from parking. There is a 24-hour shuttle van which we saw often, but didn't have need to use.
The front desk person was very friendly upon check-in. Other staff members we came upon during our 2 night stay were also pleasant.
The rooms were spacious & clean with comfortable bedding, and a large bathroom with a stand-up shower (no tub). A microwave & refrigerator were included in the room as well. Heating/cooling unit was controlled by a digital wall thermostat and worked fine.
Breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage patties, waffles (make-your-own), and the normal assortment of bagels, pastries, cereals, milk, juice and coffee. Gerry (who kept the breakfast area stocked & clean) was great, even offering to make the waffles for those who wanted one.
The only drawbacks I have for this hotel were the location (in an area that doesn't seem too safe) and the lack of places to eat close by. Otherwise, our stay was very pleasant.
