I was just here for 2 weeks while my condo was renovated. I got a great weekly rate ($235). The room itself is small, plenty of outlets and lighting, and there is a kitchenette which I used regularly. The problem is that their non-smoking rooms aren't really non-smoking. Smoke and smells come in from other rooms and every time I walked into the room, it was bad. When I moved back into my condo, the horrible smell was obvious on all of my clothes. I couldn't even put them in my closet, and had to wash everything before putting it away (even if I hadn't worn it). The other issue is that there is virtually zilch in the way of maid service. (I bought my own broom while I was there so I could keep the floor swept). The maid comes in once a week, leaves towels on the bed or in the bathroom, sometimes takes away the old towels and sometimes doesn't. If you want new towels before the week is up, you have to take your towels down to the office and trade them out. Also, the maid didn't check up on my toilet paper situation, and I ran out of it. Good thing I had my own wipes to use that night and I went to the office the next morning. The reason I chose this hotel is because it was equidistant from home and work, and very close to decent restaurants (Schlotsky's, Olive Garden, TGI Friday's and Chili's within walking distance). Now for the really really bad about this property: My car was keyed one night (a 2-3" spot). There appear to be people who "live" here and think certain parking spots are theirs, and if you come in late, the parking is iffy, at best. I'm pretty positive there is drug activity at this property as well (I wouldn't say this lightly, it's a riff-raffy kinda place). People also sometimes congregate on the landings and walkways to smoke and talk loudly. I had a guest stay with me a few nights and was most comfortable there those nights, but as a single female, I didn't sleep that great on the nights I was alone. I talked to another lady several rooms down from mine and she said she had several roaches the first morning she was there. I didn't see one roach my entire stay, so that was good. The wifi was some kind of joke. They told me they charged for it but would give me the code for free. It's a good thing, because it was unusable - the 4g on my phone worked waaaay better. I couldn't wait to get back into my smoke free condo and comfy bed. This is no vacation spot. If you're not trying to stay weekly and cheaply, pass this up and pay a little more elsewhere.
