I don't normally go back and update reviews so quickly, but I had an opportunity to stay here a second time over the weekend.
The bed is still old, but comfortable, and the room, overall still has some wear and tear. It is time they upgraded the TVs though. HD or flat screen aren't a big deal to me, but the one I had constantly had volume issues. It would get too loud then too soft. I know that happens a lot with commercials, but this was just CNN's coverage of the Asiana plane crash, followed by some sports.
But the main reason for the downgrade to 3 stars is the parking. I had mentioned before it was a tight lot, but this weekend was beyond ridiculous. When I arrived to check in at 4 p.m. There was one spot in the entire lot. Five of the spots were occupied by shuttles.
I went to some business and dinner, and there were no spots available and a couple of cars had jumped the curb to park i a lot behind the hotel. I didn't not want to do this so I parked across the street. I noticed as I parked, I wasn't the only one. Another gentleman was walkiing to his car as I was exiting mine.
As soon as I saw a shuttle leave I ran to my car to move to the spot.
I'm sure the park and fly deal is great. I'd use it myself. But with the shuttle using parking spots as well as people parking their cars there and in another city, the already small parking area becomes impossible.
The hotel really needs to convert the lot behind the building into more parking. Just 5-10 more spots would be great. It's a shame to have that lot just sit there useless when people need to park and have to drive around that lot anyway looking for a spot.
Otherwise, again, the value here is hard to beat. Few frills but a friendly staff and a comfortable room, with one of the best internet connections I've used at a hotel in some time.
