Check in was okay. When we got to the room there was 'just f#@k' written on the bathroom door. The TV was smashed and 'no TV' was written in marker on the chair in the room. There were marks on the walls and a dent in the door. I took pictures of everything so l didn't lose my security deposit. I went to the front desk to let them know and the woman working was understanding and offered to move us. It was really late and l had my elderly mother with me and it wasn't worth the hassel. The front desk stated "l think that room shouldn't have been rented".

I appreciated the easy-in, easy-out parking. The room was nothing special, rather small, actually, but it was clean and had everything that I needed. All in all, it was a good experience. Unlike some previous reviewers, I found it to be a quiet enough room. There was no exterior noise. While there is no microwave in the room, they did have one near the lobby and the coffee and tea machines were perfect. For the price, this place is perfect.

Room was nice and fairly quiet. Needed extra towels and was rudely told to come to the desk to get them. I understand that there may not be 24 hour housekeeping but, the staff needs to be a little bit more professional. Rudeness is not necessary.

We canceled 3 days before because i was hospitalized. We were told it was canceled and our card would be credited. They did nothing instead So they could pocket the money for nothing!
