I booked this based upon internet feedback and pricing. Other places nearby were rated better, but their pricing was too high for our budget.
The staff was friendly and helpful. It's a no smoking facility, but some guests were smoking right outside of their room, and we were concerned that it might drift back toward our room. When mentioned to the individual at the desk, she quickly and discreetly directed them to an area set aside for smoking, away from the rooms.
The queen bed was comfortable, although not the best I've ever had. The room was clean, and everything worked fine. The "mixed review" title for this review comes from the size of the room. It was so small that it seemed a shoehorn might have been advantageous. The bed barely fit in the room, making moving around difficult. It was the only real complaint. The shower was large and exceptional, given the size of the rest of the room. Breakfast was limited.
So, if it's just a good night's sleep you want, and a tight fit isn't a problem, this will probably work for you. If you need some space, then you will be uncomfortable. I do not know if the other rooms were as small as this one, so if you have kids (we did not) it would be advisable to make sure in advance that the room you get can accommodate the number of people in your party.
Pricing was around $160 after taxes, senior rate. Other places in town were higher, others were lower, based upon my internet search. Location was good. Downtown was easily accessible by car, and it was easy to find.
