Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The rooms were fairly small but all the amenities made up for the lack in space. The bed was incredibly soft, there was toiletries offered in the bathroom, there was an espresso machine, complimentary Jenis ice cream in the lobby, a community kitchen and dining hall on the floor we stayed, and super friendly staff. The neighborhood was a short Uber ride to High Street. The parking garage was key code locked and convenient to keep your vehicle safe. Overall, highly recommend and we will be returning.

Great place to stay for a game because of the location. The only cons are 1. The room is very small to tight fit for two people. 2. It is very noisy so being your ear plugs. We like it for the location and value.

Size is tight for a couple for multiple days. There were zero hooks or hangers and no holder for the TP roll. Liquid soap was provided in the shower only. I prefer bar soap and brought some but there was no ledge to sit it on. The shower curtain and ledge are wheelchair accessible but do a poor job of directing water into drain due to the back wall position of the shower head. A second side wall optional head position would have helped. Desk staff were courteous and helpful.
