10/10 Exceptional

After this experience we'll probably never stay in a hotel again! They have coffee, snacks, and water for free and all the cooking utensils you could need if you want to cook your own meals. The bed was more comfortable than ours at home! The best part, though, is that it was so quiet at night! Unlike a hotel, there was nobody running down hallways or walking on the floor above us. It was only a few blocks from our daughter, too! We would definitely stay here again!
