Decent Accomodations

It was a decent quick stay hotel. Not a very busy location if you're looking for night life, or busy activity. The downtown area clears out after 5:00 and the hotel is surrounded by a few seedy areas. I question the true safety of walking around the area, but was told it was okay to do. The fitness room had lots of equipment, but it was sorely out of date, and overused. The fitness room was quite small as well. It was a good price for what I received.

Fine value, but some issues.

Arrived late and check-in was a bit of a hassle. Room was comfortable but bathroom needed a bit of an upgrade. Location is superb in the heart of Rochester.

nice stay

I didn't spend much time in the hotel, but the staff were freindly. The location is close to the airport which is a good thing. Maybe next time I will have more attention to other points,so far I was happy.

Was nice once but a bit run down

The hotel is old and a little run down. It was as clean as it could be I guess. The hotel was not kept up. There was no attention to detail on part of the hotel, an example of that is I was on the phone and needed to write down a phone number and there was no paper or pen/pencil in the room, another example is there was no kleenex in the room. Another complaint I had was when we arrived to check in there was only one person at the front desk and she was on the phone and didn't acknowledge us until she was done, which was about 10-15 minutes, meanwhile the other phone was ringing off the hook. While at the bar one night we talked to another guest who had experienced the same thing when checking in. The location of the hotel is nice because it is with in walking distance of some nice restaurants but all the one way streets in downtown Rochester and no left turns between 9:00a-6:00p make it difficult to get on to state street, where it is located, especially for an out-of-towner.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Dinosaur BBQ is a GREAT place to get dinner! They have great food and a fun atmosphere. Plan on waiting for a table though, we went on a Monday night and had to wait for 30min for two of us, but it is well worth it. We went to the bar while we waited and had one of their 20+ beers on tap (plus 40+ bottles to choose from).

Good value if you're not a light sleeper

Our room and beds were very comfortable and clean. It was pretty noisy: the doors closed hard and loud, you could hear the TV next door and hallway noises. Showering was very difficult because there was no water pressure.FYI, this hotel allows pets.

Comfortable, quiet, and private.

I stayed at the hotel with my family because of a death in the family. Even though we were going through rough times, me and my family really enjoyed the quietness, and tranquil moments we were able to spend in our rooms without any disturbances. It was a great deal and convenient to all the places we had to travel to. Compliments to the beds, they were really comfortable.
