Our stay was comfortable and quiet. There was a hole in the blanket. There was an almost empty roll of toilet paper with none to replace it. We had to ask for a roll to be delivered to our room

It was easy to get to. The phone didn't work so I couldn't call the desk to tell then that the TV didn't work. It turned on, but apparently not connected to cable.

Not to bad
It was an average stay, a little pricey for the quality and condition of the building. Wifi never worked, and the office is at the end of the building. Never checked on breakfast, Bob Evans was a closer walk. No ice or vending machines close. Maybe if you get a room close to the office it would be better.Area was quiet and ned and shower were fine.
