Trip for Brandon

Room was average. It was obvious that it is an old building with some upgrades. The bathroom needs upgraded badly! The toilet ran all night long keeping us awake and the shower / bathtub was outdated.

Very helpful staff with directions to good food. The location is very close to many good chain restaurants, and easy to find other attractions from.

Better than most at this price

very nice hot breakfast, very helpful staff; however, the room was extremely damp, as most of them are that have that kind of cooling system and the rug was smelly, but most hotel rooms have smelly rugs because guests always walk around in stinky bare feet. Strangely, I had a very poor cell ph one signal at this location.

Busy weekend...

My fiancé and I came to town for a Friday wedding. Little did we know it was move in weekend for the university. We could only stay one of two needed nights because of high volume. Pros on this hotel: good location, free parking and reasonable price. Cons: sad fitness center (one treadmill, one elliptical that needs maintenance, and limited weights), low -fair quality breakfast & room felt moist despite ac running at set temp. I also didn't like how hallway near the elevator smelled like smoke. But the good thing was our room did not smell of smoke. Would I stay here again? Sure, the seller is the 12:00 check out time. You can sleep in, have a quick bite and get on that one old treadmill before hitting the road! All in all, it served my needs for the night and next morning.
