as Good as it Gets.

Staff, location and price were perfect. They were doing some exterior renovation but that had no effect on the quality of service. The Continental breakfast was exceptional with fresh scrambled eggs and sausage as well as cereal, juice and coffee.

The carpet was not in good condition

When I walked in the room, I couldn't believe in my eyes how dirty the carpet was, you can even see the soil in the carpet, that's mean they didn't vacumm nor shampoo the carpet, I even have to wear my socks when I walk in the room and in the end, my white socks turn black because of that, the carpet smell very bad, too. The bed sheet was very rough on my skin and doesn't look like it was clean carefully, the TV signal was bad and the air conditioner made a lot of noise at night. I talked to the receptionist and all she could say was: I would let the manager aware of this, yeah right, after I had to pay nearly $120.00 a night, I had a dirty room to stay and just a word from them that they would let the manager knows. Anyway, it was a big disappointment.
