This motel room was small, but I chose it because it was walking distance to friends I was visiting. Breakfast is included and the WiFi was very good. Parking was free and at night the parking lot was locked,. It has a small gym on the ground floor.

Hotel is easy to find, quick check in and free parking. The room was clean, pretty spacious with 2 beds, a mini fridge and microwave. Wifi worked fine and the free breakfast was okay but no hot food items, just cereal, bagels, fruit, muffins and waffles/toast. We were visiting to go to a hockey game and the hotel is a... More

We are located in the heart of downtown and it is wonderful that this was of convenience to you during your stay. We hope that you enjoyed our breakfast despite it being continental and that you will visit us again soon.... More

Checkin was OK, the clerk was very slow, but we made it through. The room was large, with fridge and microwave. Some long black hairs on the shower wall in an otherwise adequate bathroom. The included breakfast was minimal, frozen waffles, bagels, toast, cereals. This is not a place I would recommend if you are able to locate another.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a candid review. The hotel has just recently switched computer systems, which may explain why our front desk agent took a bit longer than usual to get you checked in. We strive for elegance through cleanliness and apologize that your bathroom wasn't completely spotless upon check in. We do offer a... More

This place is A-Ok as far as location and proximity to Convention Center is concerned. Also within walking distance to downtown and the college campus. It isn't too far from the airport either.
