Overall the room was nice, the bed comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and apologetic. However, the rooms were not quiet. There was some sort of hockey tournament going on in town. The kids set up some practice equipment in the hallway and were very loud all day from 2 in the afternoon until 10 at night. We asked them to be quiet several times. Then the parents were partying in the hallway until midnight. Then someone was knocking on doors at 2:30am. They never knocked on our door, but it did not matter, they knocked loud enough to wake us up. Funny thing was we could not hear any television or noise from the rooms next to us, only what was happening in the hallway. So if your neighbors are quiet, I bet this is a great place. Unfortunately for us, we had frat house neighbors.
