1 staff for the whole hotel at night. We got into our room and the toilet was plugged, tried calling the front desk from our room and no one answered ever, after 15 minutes of trying, I just walked to the front desk and there was no one there, 5 minutes after waiting at the from the one staff member showed up, I told him about the plugged toilet and what he did is he gave me a plunger and said: "are you ok with using this to unplugged the toilet? I could do it but is not something I like to do". At the end I took the plunger and did it myself, not something a Guest should be doing at a hotel! The smell in the hallways was also not pleasant at all.

Way too high priced

At least twice of what a hotel that dated should have cost. Clean but not worth the price.

Old, outdated, paper thin walls, smelly. Wooden boards were sticking out from the bed frame. Every sound could be heard through the walls.

Great Hotel!

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
My sister felt very safe and welcome here while her spouse was in the hospital. She enjoyed breakfast nearly every morning before heading to the hospital and that was often her only meal of the day.

Where's the coffee?

Pros: price
Cons: Nothing close, Poor breakfast
My husband and I arrived at 3pm to check in. It was hassle free and quick with very pleasant staff. Our room was nice and clean and just what we needed after a whirlwind day of shopping. I agree that the room walls were thin, but you are paying a cheaper rate, so you get what you pay for. The minimal noise did bother us at all. But the bird outside somwehre that constantly chirped away 24/7 drove me nuts. I was ready to find a rock and pelt it. Breakfast was okay, cereal, oatmeal, bread, english muffins, and bagels. But NO COFFEE. All you had was the hot water spigot off the coffee machine and decaf instant coffee pkgs. Who wants decaf in the morning. It's like they didn't bother buying real coffee. That was the one thing I didn't like about this hotel. Oh the bed is TOO SOFT for me. lol

The staff was very accommodating.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
The staff worked around our schedules for when we were in and out of the room and didn't bother us if we didn't want service but only towels which was good.

Loved the pillow top bed, very comfy!

Pros: Free breakfast
Loved the pillow top bed, very comfy! We got a unit with a king bed in a sperate room and a queenbed and kitchenette in the main area. The main area was very small but we managed.
