Affordable, clean, yet humid with a mildew smell.
Posted Sep 12, 2016
The staff was pleasant—fast check in and check out.
Breakfast was good: an assortment of cereals, bagels (with cream cheese and hard boiled eggs in the fridge), danishes; biscuits and gravy; an omelette station (some with cheese, some with ham) with fried potatoes and sausage links; a waffle maker with syrup and jams. There was also coffee and tea.
Room was clean, but as soon as we got in, we noticed the humidity and the mildew smell. The air conditioner has been on, set at 70, and functioning on the Middle setting (there are Low, Middle, and High). We lowered the temperature, hoping it would dry out the room, but it never got to that point. As the result, we slept with the humming of the air conditioning. One big problem is that there is a vent, but no fan in the bathroom, so all the humidity stays in the room (even if you keep the door closed). Speaking of which, the bathroom door get stuck because of humidity (wood expands, proving it more difficult to open and close the door). This was the biggest inconvenience, hence the lower rating.
The location is convenient, but is by the noisy Interstate 40 (we asked for rooms not facing the road, and had no problem).
If you are here just for one night, and don't have allergies (which none of us did), this is a good option. We were a group of grad students, so were working with a budget. Ultimately, we would book a different place next time.
