We stayed one week while visiting family; would likely not go back to this hotel.
The good: rooms are very large, most with a full kitchen. Beds are quite comfortable; bathroom is adequate. Cleaning staff did a great job every day.
The not so good: furniture is well worn, with an armchair that has most of the finish scraped off. Windows are not clear (moisture??) and difficult to open. The vanity and sink are outside the bathroom and adjacent the bed; so it's impossible for one person to get cleaned up without waking anyone else in the room. As is often the case, one cannot turn on the bathroom light without also turning on an annoyingly loud fan.
A laundry room on our floor was very convenient.
The breakfast was somewhat worse than anything else we encountered on this trip. Cut up fruit consisted solely of pineapple... in an area where oranges and grapefruit abound. Scrambled eggs and DIY waffles were the mainstay of the breakfast. Coffee was "available" during the evening, but it was always cold.
Staff were friendly, but we were surprised at how little local knowledge front desk personnel had. Inquiries about local restaurants were not well answered, nor our questions about things to see and do in the area.
The hotel is somewhat difficult to locate, with an address that most GPS devices would not find. Although it is quite close to the main highway it is surprisingly quiet. There is a wonderful walking/running/cycling trail one short block away.
