Hotel is fine
Posted Jun 16, 2008
While this isn't the best hotel we've stayed at, it is good enough. We have a toddler and were on a budget, so wanted to stay at a hotel that had a kitchen, sofabed and laundry room. This hotel had all three. We were able to cook dinner about half the time (kitchen is small but fully functional and stocked with microwave, plates and bowls, pots, etc.). Added pluses were a decent free breakfast 7 days a week (hot items included) and hamburgers and tacos in the evening a couple of times during our 10-day stay there. Almost every one of the staff was incredibly friendly and responsive, and there were free newspapers (including the Wall St Journal) and Newsweek for the guests. My one complaint was the occasional noise issue - the floors were very thin, and the noise from the people walking upstairs was really loud. I think we had some particularly noisy folks upstairs and I actually woke up one night because of the noise. I would say I heard them just a handful of times. The noise from outside in the hall was very audible as well, but this happened during the mornings usually. We also had a really loud fan in the bathroom which annoyed our son so much that he chose to pee in the dark (the fan turned on along with the light). The area around the hotel was sort of deserted but there is shopping just a few minutes away by car.
