Near Duff's, Anchor Bar, Wegman's, Aldi's and Premier Liquor, as well as the University. Not far from "the" 290 / Youngman Expy. Everything here is done well: check-in, service, breakfast. Our King room was well laid out and clean. Big bathroom. We will stay here again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 March 2017

we have used this hotel several times now. The staff is very helpful. The location is excellent. The breakfast bar is very well stocked. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. Sometimes there are travel groups booked in and they can be "overwhelming".

We have stopped here twice and was very satisfied both nights. Not a luxury place, but a comfortable, clean room, good facilities, nice breakfast, all for a reasonable price. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This hotel ticks some boxes, but don't expect to feel like you're getting anything more than you're paying for. It doesn't feel new, or extraordinarily well maintained. The carpets in hallways and elevators always looked in need of vacuuming during our stay. The ceilings are low. We had a king room and it was on the small side, but not...

A very consistently clean and comfortable hotel. From easy check in, 24 hour beverage station, clean and comfortable rooms and an amazing self serve breakfast in the morning, it was a wonderful place to stay. I have stayed here in the past and plan to return. Close proximity to great shopping areas. Good value

The room we had was adequate, decently appointed and fairly comfortable, BUT... ...it smelled strongly of the Ghost of Smokers Past -- to the point where it seemed to aggravate my allergy. And when we complained, their solution was to sign us up for a rewards membership. As if! Another problem was the shower/bathtub, whose floor is a broken cranium...

I stayed here two nights on business and the room was more than adequate. The hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly, and it was centrally located. The complimentary breakfast had a wide variety of food options (Greek yogurt, fruit, waffles, bagels). The coffee hot and they had a nice creamer selection. I'd definitely stay here again.

“Rooms have been renovated lately but I always check to ensure that the flow of water in the bath-tub is good. Another idea could be to check if your room faces the front (better view) or back...not a big issue.”
