Good for the price, but there were hiccups

For the price paid the room was good. Fairly cleanly, comfortable bed and pillows, but the rims around faucets were an eyesore. Bathtub spout had a small hole in the wall like it wasn't installed flush or maybe they made the hole too big for the spout size. Breakfast was good. Had a good selection including egg & cheese (though it was cold), hard boiled eggs, waffles, bagels, toast cereal, fruits, and your normal breakfast beverage. Now to the front desk - this is where there were hiccups. Initially everything with checking in was good and nice service, but after I got to the room and had to return back to the front desk, all things went downhill when I had to deal with a manager. Requested non-smoking room and they gave a room that smelled like smoke before even having a chance to enter the room. Went back to front desk to ask about that and there was a lot of "unnecessary" back and forth. First they tell me it's a non-smoking room in a smoking area -- that makes no sense at all. Then saying reservation was through online travel site so they can't guarantee request for non-smoking room -- also makes no sense. This is not a matter of having a blow dryer in the room or not, but something that impacts a person's health especially if they're allergic on top of having young kids staying as well. If a reservation is for non-smoking, isn't it standard that that alone should be met? After all this, I asked them again (after asking multiple times), "Do you not have a non-smoking room available to change to?" and the response being no and we can spritz the room for you. I told them then I'm forced to take what's available but a complaint will be put in because the reservation was for non-smoking. They then finally offered up a non-smoking room. Why did they have to put a guest through all that? It's clearly a request made during the reservation (even showed them the email) and this not something I'm trying to add in upon arrival. The part that bothers me the most is that they couldn't have straight up addressed the issue of just offering the non-smoking room as reserved, but rather had to run through all that. I also kept asking "do you not have a nonsmoking room available?" and it came off like they were trying to push it off so they didn't have to change my room. Other irritating part to this stay is if you are assigned to a room above the first level (I think there are 2 to 3 levels depending on which building you stay at) that there are no elevators. Totally a no-no when you have luggage, baby, young kid, stroller, etc.

A good place to stay overnight

We were a party of 4 and have chosen this place because the room had 2 queens. A nice and clean hotel to spend a night, just seconds from I-95. We ate a standard Continental breakfast with a great pleasure buy, unfortunately, hadn't have time to use fitness and a swimming pool.

Second Time Here

It's my second time staying here for night. It was better than last time. I got a non-smoking room and there is no smells like last time. And another wonderful thing is that they allow to keep one pet for free. I like it and will book it again.

A good place to stay one night

I stayed there for one night with my friend. We have hairdryer, microwave and coffee machine in our room. They also offer breakfast. It is a three-story building with free parking. The price is cheap and reasonable. The only suggestion I would provide is that they should put something fragrant in the room so it does not smell weird.

Okay for the price

Staff was friendly and location was convenient. However, the room was outdated and not totally clean. For the price, it is about what is expected.
