4-star comfort with 3-star cost

We had a great stay. The room is big with nice furnishings, comfortable beds, clean carpet, marble vanity, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, flat screen TV, and free wifi. If it has comforters instead of blankets, and glasses instead of paper cups, I would think it is a 4-start hotel. The location is great with a lot of restaurants to choose from.

Stop in for the night

The hotel is older and could use some updates but our over all stay was good. Staff was friendly and room was clean. Breakfast was basic yogurt, pastries and cereal. Price was cheap but hotel was still decent.

OK

The room I had was non-smoking but smelled like smoke, probably because the staff was smoking outside my room. The breakfast buffet was not very good at all.
