Better than Super 8, I guess
I've stayed in this hotel 2x on short notice. The first time, last year, the desk clerk said she needed to swipe my credit card even though I'd already paid online. Ended up being charged twice but easy to resolve. Fast forward to the most recent stay. Booked the same day as check-in because of a blizzard; I understand it was hectic. I booked online early in the day, knowing I'd be stuck in town. Turns out it was a suite. Check-in took 2 hours & then it was the wrong room, not a suite, but they charged me for a suite anyway. They'd given my room to someone else. Fine, I was thankful just to get a room- but don't downgrade me & charge the same price & then avoid mentioning you should adjust my fees. Did you think I wouldn't notice? Room was ok. Bed was clean, shower was not. My floor was quiet but the fridge in my room was not. The day of check-out (which is @noon), the staff knocked on my door 3 times to ask when I was leaving. Starting at 9am & then every 45 mins to an hour, even though I told them each time I was waiting until closer to 11:45-12:00. Finally, I take some stuff out to my car & by the time I get back inside to get the rest of my items, at 11:15am, my key card no longer worked- I was locked out of my room with my purse still inside. Had to make 2 trips to the front desk to get the key card reactivated & actually working. Overall, it's affordable & works if you're short on options & need a place to stay for 1 night- but I won't give them another try.

not like the photos
The hotel was fine, but not exceptional by any means. Our room didn't get cleaned after the first night which we thought was odd. The rooms also didn't look anything like the photos that were online.

Clean place to stay... not the most comfortable.
Beds weren’t the most comfortable and the shower made a terrible sound.
