A little run down, but NO BED BUGS, so I didn't care! This hotel was a great value compared to the price of other hotels in the area. Nice staff, including front desk, breakfast hostesses and cleaning personell! Breakfast buffett which is usually complementary at other hotels is a $10.00 charge here! I didn't like that and with similar selections to hotels with free breakfast, there was nothing special for this additional fee. The Internet kept requiring frequent re-sign-ins, a nusance and frustrating if you're answering emails, trying to buy and sell stocks, communicate with clients, etc. Walls and doors are thin. You can hear more than you want to hear, especially outside in the hallway (I know that lady across the hallway, for example, and 3 doors down from me was having a good time at 11:45PM !). The rugs were old and stained, but in all fairness I must mention that they were being changed-out while I was there, so this hopefully won't be an issue much longer. MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOWEVER, THE BEDS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE! I HAD A GREAT NIGHT'S SLEEP IN THEM, PILLOWS BLANKETS WERE VERY SOFT AND THE SHEET HAD THE ELASTIC ON THE OUTER EDGES TO PREVENT EXPOSING A BARE MATTRESS, HERE! I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW IMPORTANT THIS ASPECT OF A HOTEL STAY IS. IT CAN BE QUITE GROSS IF YOUR LEGS WIND-UP ON A BARE MATRESS IN THE MORNING AS I'M SURE EVERYONE READING THIS KNOWS! Also, the parking was good, always had spaces even when hotel was full!
