Do you like listening to your neighbors talking, coughing, showering, and going to the bathroom? Do you love the sound of loudly running water through the walls at all hours? Then this is the place for you! Maybe you like always feeling like you're in the shower with a stranger...Personally, I barely slept in this place even with ear plugs. If you have a hotel that is "in the round" where the rooms are in a smaller, taller building, then these issues need to be addressed. But at the moment, it feels like everyone is on top of each other.
Parking is weird and awkward. When you first arrive, you don't really know what to do because there is no one at the "Main Entrance." So you eventually park yourself or use a 15 minute spot, if you're ambitious, then go to check in. Then you have to head back out with a pass to put in your car. Not a deal buster, but annoying, mostly because you don't really know what to do when you arrive. Oh, and hopefully you don't stay out too late...Because the lot fills up at night. I had to park on a secondary lot and wasn't really sure if that was even allowed. PLUS, the spots are so tight, I once considered using my sunroof just to get out of the car. So I recommend this place if you rent a convertible. Oh, and dream on if you expect a bell hop to greet you...I didn't see one the whole trip.
This was the cheapest option in the area and I guess you get what you pay for. Although with the new construction, I saw several new spots. I would spend a little more and try them out over the Deca, especially given the sleep I now have to catch up on.
