Cashed in some PC points for this room. This property needed to do some convincing to win me over, but they certainly did. I was quite disappointed with our room (309). It was below the standard I expect from HIX. Yes, they have a new bed, so that is good. But the rest of the room has very cheap furniture intermixed with very old stuff that probably has stuck around since this place was a HI property. Also, the carpet is pretty dirty. The room looks bare and sort of institutional, as do the bathrooms. I read some reviews saying they have renovated rooms and I just can't seem to figure out if this room is renovated. Newish furniture and bed, but oldish looking carpet? Still, overall, the place comes off as sub-par for HIX.
But the sleep and the service won me over. They are very friendly and when we showed up a little late for breakfast, there was not much left. So they made us some extra meat and eggs, even though they would not be ready until breakfast was officially over. So, overall, they get a recommendation.
