College Touring Trip

This is a motel - therefore cars are parked right in front of your door/window. Thus, a 6:00 am wake-up time occurred as another guest left at that hour, which wasn't great. The facility is older typical of the town in general, but very clean. The staff were very friendly. Upgrades to the bathroom are currently underway, though our room had not been done yet. Bed was very comfortable. Underground parking isn't super convenient but it is free. Location is excellent. I would prefer an upper room next time, and finished bathroom.

we toughed it out

Everything was good except one BIG issue, outlets not working in bathroom! That's why the 1 star for amenities. Other then that, decent place to stay. Eric at the Front Desk was great.

Cheap Hotel/Decent Location

I didn't expect much given the price of our room. I was disappointed however, at the very strong chemical/cleaning solution smell in our room. We opened the window and door and let the place air out for several hours before actually being comfortable in the room. There was a similar smell, that may have been even stronger, in the lobby when we checked in. It was so strong that I opted out of the free continental breakfast the next morning, it was very unpleasant. Other than that the room was ok given the price we paid.
