Surprisingly Quiet 5-Night Stay at Busy Hotel
Posted Jul 22, 2016
I booked this hotel because it offers a refrigerator and microwave, but no breakfast. I usually don't use hotels' complimentary breakfast and the bridge and microwave let me make my own breakfast. A shopping complex is within a very easy walk and it has a Target, supermarket and several restaurants. Although it's on Cerrillos Rd (a six lane major commercial thoroughfare, my stay was very quiet. My only wish with hotels everywhere is that they offer a dedicated outdoor smoking space that is NOT located at an entrance to the hotel. I hate having to walk through the gauntlet of smoke! The room furnishings and fixtures were a little worn, but this hotel has a very high turnover and I would guess that during my 5-night stay that it was booked up every night. Also they really need to update the electrical outlets and include usb outlets. The outlets which were easy to reach were on the base of the lamps, which don't work very well with Apple's bulky computer charging or usb devices. (Last year I stayed at Hyatt Place and the refrigerator was not working, so I won't book there again. Also Hyatt Place's rooms were not very soundproof.
