Good breakfast - rooms are spacious and clean - nice location in town...good eateries all around

Have stayed here several times - with the availability of a kitchenette you can avoid an expensive meal out if you so choose. Beds are comfortable and clean - good eats just downstairs and if you enjoy playing pool they have billards as well.

Overall very good value for the money.

Nice 1 bedroom suite, including 2 TVs, king size bed, computer with printer. Very good value for a reasonable price.
My only issue was with the complimentary breakfast. It doesn't start until 7am. If catering to the business crowd, this is too late in the day to be starting breakfast. I'm out of here by 6. It would be nice if they at least had a self-serve breakfast (i.e. toast, cereal) where people who are here to work.
