2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I found the interior to be outdated and claustrophobic in the floors above the lobby. The beds were pretty stiff, the pillows were very thin and the towels were rough. I understand that this is an economy hotel but I was still kinda surprised with how Spartan and uncomfortable overall the rooms were. Also, if you have a second person in the single bed room, you will not have privacy while using the bathroom or showering, due to the very close proximity of the toilet to the bed (about 2.5 feet away). Also, with no bathroom fans, it will be tough to get out any bathroom smells or shower humidity.

Liked: Cleanliness
Good: check in was fast & friendly. Room was clean. Check out was fast & easy. Good tv with lots of channels to choose from. Not so good: horrible dim lighting in hallways. No wash cloths for shower; when I asked for one they had none. Ad for room said they had breakfast available but there was none In reality. No vending machines for snacks or sodas. For private bath you pay $178/night after fees & taxes. For slightly more I could have gotten a larger room with more amenities elsewhere. It was ok but I'd be hard pressed to recommend it.
