I just returned from staying there, and this place was a pretty good option. Just a block off the 'main drag.' Parking is across the street, and the front desk will give you passes if you ask. There's a little cafe across the street and the food is awesome. The hotel has breakfast - for $12 you could have access to: fruit, granola, yogurt, scrambled eggs, potatoes, biscuits, sausage and bacon, cereal, bagels/bread, danishes, Starbucks coffee, an omelet station and waffle station. Great if you want a hearty breakfast, but if you're a light breakfast eater, you may want to find some place else and not waste your time or get a muffin from their pantry (located right by the front desk). The pantry was a pretty good idea - beverages, snacks, toiletries in one convenient spot. Of course, you're probably better hitting up the Walgreens (open 24 hours) a few blocks down if you want to get things cheaper. The hotel is also only a block from Fez - check it out to get a burger or drink! There are also other restaurants within walking distance.
The rooms in the West Tower are a bit more updated than the Cabana rooms. My room (west tower) was alright - carpet was fine, comfortable king size bed (you can adjust the firmness), chair and ottoman, desk with ergonomic chair, pool view, metal luggage stand (in closet, ironing board, mini fridge, microwave, and TV. The bathroom could have used some updating - mainly the shower. Also - water pressure was really not all that great. It's a shame - they have the showerheads with the adjustable streams (mist, massage, etc.) but because the water pressure was so low, it didn't really matter what setting you had it on. My room also had an adjoining door to another room - I imagine you would be able to request something like this should you need it - which could be a plus for families if needed (although, this is not really a 'family' hotel - more like for business trips/adults. Internet in the room was free - both wifi and hardwired. The air conditioning was hard to adjust - it was freezing in my room no matter what I did to the thermostat, so I just turned it off.
The hotel was relatively quiet - my room was right by the ice machine. You didn't really hear it much, but it would be annoying had the hotel been more full.
The pool area was nice - hot tub is right by it.
I'm not sure if all rooms were nonsmoking, but I went out front and around the corner to the right where the designated smoking area was.
Front desk staff was friendly. They have a business center with 2 computers and a printer/fax machine/scanner. I had issues with printing from the computer on the left, but the computer on the right went smoothly.
Request an updated/west tower room.
