Hotel was clean, in good condition, and service was fine. Hotel is located right off the expressway and has a nearby fire department that often runs. If sirens blaring doesn't wake you up at night, you may not mind. The beds were very soft/squishy. We prefer a firmer mattress. Otherwise, was conveniently located.

Everything was good, room was clean, nice view and so on; the only thing was that they did not have breakfast available the lady at the front desk gave us two breakfast sandwiches but nothing else.

quiet
I was a little disappointed i had requested a room with 2 beds and the front desk person even asked.me if i had any special requests and i said yes we needed 2 beds. When we arrived at the room it had only 1 bed so we called the front desk and my son went and exchanged the keys for a room with 2 beds. The room was very clean bed was comfortable and was very quiet.

Not a great experience!
I have stayed here many times and this time was not good. Staff=not friendly to the point of rude. Large hand print on our mirror when we entered our room. Our other family members were given a room already occupied by someone else.
