The staff was courteous, polite and professional. I didn’t like that the room didn’t have a mini fridge or a microwave.

We were scheduled to stay two nights. The room was small but we stayed the first night. We returned to the room around 4:00PM on the second night to discover the cleaning staff has not been into the room yet. I notified the front desk and returned to the room at which point my wife showed me an alive bug of some type that she captured on the bed. We subsequently decided to leave and were refunded our money for our second night's stay. There were three other hotels within one block of this one so we went to another hotel which turned out to be a much better experience.

It was alrighr

No tissues in the room. Took forever for the room to heat up, then it got too hot. Should have a mini fridge in the standard room.

Not the nicest place but not the worst either.

We booked this hotel because it was inexpensive in comparison to other hotels. The pictures on their website are pretty accurate. There are no amenities (i.e. Fridge in room, continental breakfast, hair dryer, etc). I had to go and buy a hair dryer. We were expecting our room to be cleaned (at least clean towels and beds made) when we came back to our room after the first night. When we returned after dinner someone had put a do not disturb sign on our door - I guess to coverup why they hadn't cleaned. After I went to the front desk, they gave me some clean towels and that was it. For the remaining 6 days they did come in each day to change out the towels and make beds but never changed the sheets. If you're looking for five stars, you won't find it here. But the beds were comfortable and it was quiet. At one point during our stay my husband offered to check us out and go to the nearby Marriott but we decided to stick it out.
