$134 a night and have to pay for breakfast. Can stay at the Embassy Suites, get a full loaded breakfast and its free. At least the coffee was free. And the room marked as non-smoking reaked of cigarette smoke.

I was in town for the SEC Baseball Tournament. Very easy access to stadium - in an area with plenty of things to do between games - wonderful outside area for smoking with a covered patio - accommodations were very homey and in an area I felt very secure with.
