My family and I were in town for a relatives graduation. Getting into town was awful. Our original flight from LA with American was delayed 12 hours and the flight we ended up getting was late. We found ourselves running through the airport after about two hours of sleep. Needless to say we were exhausted by the time we got...

we have used this hotel several times now. The staff is very helpful. The location is excellent. The breakfast bar is very well stocked. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. Sometimes there are travel groups booked in and they can be "overwhelming".

Stayed here for a two week business trip. The first week, I had to get my key reset, and the shower was weak.. but got the job done. The second week in a different room and both of the slight issues were resolved. Breakfast is good, rooms are clean, and the hotel is not hard to find. Plenty of close...

This was just a one night stay and it was way back in March. It won;t be one of my best reviews as a result. I do remember that the check-in process was really good. There was a free hot breakfast; but, sleep was more important to us (and did not make it). The room was great, shower, too. We...

Average is a bit generous for this hotel. They are much less expensive than others in the area which is the reason I upped their rating. Carpeting is worn. Plumbing is old with leaky faucets. We were awakened at 3am with people yelling, and knocking on doors. At 3 am received a phone call from someone asking if we were...

Near Duff's, Anchor Bar, Wegman's, Aldi's and Premier Liquor, as well as the University. Not far from "the" 290 / Youngman Expy. Everything here is done well: check-in, service, breakfast. Our King room was well laid out and clean. Big bathroom. We will stay here again.

We have stopped here twice and was very satisfied both nights. Not a luxury place, but a comfortable, clean room, good facilities, nice breakfast, all for a reasonable price. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This hotel ticks some boxes, but don't expect to feel like you're getting anything more than you're paying for. It doesn't feel new, or extraordinarily well maintained. The carpets in hallways and elevators always looked in need of vacuuming during our stay. The ceilings are low. We had a king room and it was on the small side, but not...

A very consistently clean and comfortable hotel. From easy check in, 24 hour beverage station, clean and comfortable rooms and an amazing self serve breakfast in the morning, it was a wonderful place to stay. I have stayed here in the past and plan to return. Close proximity to great shopping areas. Good value
