Knowing that plastic forks were provided at breakfast I went to the office to request two one evening. After a barrage of 9-10 questions about my room and intended use he yelled "No!" For the...

Upon entering room, a foul odor was overwhelming. It smelled like a combination of smoke/dirty socks! Carpet badly stained in several areas. Continental breakfast is vy limited. This wasn't worth $155.00!

Not a bad place at all. I've been staying here through the week on and off for the last 2 years. The manager is great and the maids actually clean unlike other places in this area. Parking is available and you don't have to pay for it.

I was there for four days, room was clean but staff was useless, I reported my room safe didn't work, no one ever showed up (it looked like it just needed a new battery). While checking in I asked to use a rest room, no dice. Internet was iffy.
