Comfortable

Everything was clean and quiet. I had a very long flight from Europe and was happy to get a good nights rest. The breakfast helped too! I had another flight the following day.

Average Hotel

Room was pretty clean. The A/C could have worked better. Needed batteries for the remote. Which they didn't have any on hand, and said to come back in the morning (that would help... NOT).

Good location but sketchy circumstances

1 star is a gift. Air conditioner too loud to use during sleep hours. Carpet disgusting. Hotel near airport but neighborhood did not feel safe. 2 story with no elevator...no attempt by employees to assist to 2nd level with heavy suitcase even after saying I had a bad back. No tv channel guide and desk fellow didn't know what channel abc or nbc or cbs were on. Need I continue? I know none of my friends would stay at this hotel. I wonder WHO gave this hotel 2 stars?

not

First thing we found at checkin was that there was an additional fee for parking. We specifically chose this location because of the offer for up to a week of parking at no additional cost. Second, the room had an odd odor. Won't be staying there again.

Disaster

Hotel was overbooked and the alternative arrangements made by the owner with another hotel owned by same company was the absolute worst hotel I ever stayed in.

Lacking

The advertised shuttle was non-existent. The internet didn't work. The breakfast offering was below average. If I wasn't in such a hurry I would have asked for a refund. I was really quite disappointed.

Quiet and out of the way.

Just hard to find the people in charge. The rooms are old but clean. Excellent for the price I paid.
