This was a sad and lonely place to stay. We sort of knew we had chosen badly when we saw that there were only 5 cars in the parking lot, while the lot for the Doubletree across the street seemed to be full. Our impression was confirmed once we got inside. The room was clean and the staff did their jobs. However, the paint job was sloppy, there were stains on the rugs, there was bad staining on the wall in the bathroom where the plumbing had leaked through the drywall (in fact the hole the water had come through was still there too). The view from our window in the back of the hotel was of the edge of a park and kinda creepy, and right before bedtime we heard a lot of shouting out there. I was just about to call the guy at the front desk and suggest that he call the police, when the shouting subsided. Drug deal finished, perhaps? I don't want to know. The continental breakfast was extremely limited--we elected to leave and go find a restaurant. We were visiting a local college: I can safely say, if our daughter gets in, we will never stay here again. In all fairness, the price was a lot less than that Doubletree I mentioned, but I think I would rather spend more money next time.
