Would recommend

My husband and I stayed here for one night from Chicago, we were here for a wedding. Overall thee experience was nice. Rooms could use some updating. The TVs are really out of date. It really made me think about my one year old....its very big and in an awkward area for an active child. The hallway smelled like smoke although its nonsmoking.hey you get what u pay for!!close too shopping and food!

You get what you pay for

There's something to be said for a hotel that lists an iron and ironing board under "amenities." This hotel is in serious need of updating. It also had a distinct musty feel in the halls and room. It is extremely close to dining and shopping, however.

what a dump

Where to begin? Questioned whether or not the sheets had been changed between occupants, as there was a strand of long hair, crumbs, stains, etc., on the sheets (wondered about bedbugs...). Carpet was old & worn. Refrigerator & microwave did not work; discovered clock radio did not work unless lights were on. (Is this the reason the frig & micro didn't work?) "Breakfast" (a choice of 2 cereals, toast/bagels in defective toaster, rotten fruit) was served in a former guest room; a total of 3 tables to accommodate guests. One of the grossest places I've ever stayed.

Adequate, but needs some TLC

Stayed here while attending the Vera Bradley Outlet sale. Facility needs an upgrade! Had to ask for a light bulb, the outlet did not work for the coffeemaker and you had to move and unplug the microwave to even get to it! Not a plesant experience!
