6/10 Good

Needs some work, bring earplugs
The good: Hotel manager who checked us in was pleasant. The room itself was clean and good sized, up to date. Plenty of towels (which as we know is rare), coffee, and well stocked with soaps, shampoos, etc. Comfortable beds and pillows. Medium sized pool, seemed clean. Nice family hotel, they take pets too apparently, this is good to know even though I did not have my dog with me as I was on business. Now the not so good: Hotel common areas very outdated and there was a slight odor... The "included breakfast" was a complete joke. Its a teaser for the attached restaurant Governors which actually serves a pretty good breakfast, reasonably priced, good service too. Anyway, the crux of the problem - The room was incredibly overpriced (big city prices!) Honestly it was a $79 room and I paid almost 4 times that! I thought i was going to be staying in quite a special place for that price.The bad: Room was near the ice machine and heard people getting ice all night long, the walls are super thin - goes for the ceiling too - neighbors above us were constantly dropping something.. for hours. Also they were cleaning the floors in the wee hours, I heard hoses being dragged around in the hallway (through the door). The pool can get quite noisy as well. If you are going to stay in this hotel, expect to overpay and not sleep unless you bring some earplugs.

10/10 Exceptional

Great stay and staff
From the time we checked in to the time we left, we couldn't have been happier with our stay. We had an appointment at 3:00 which was the same time as the earliest we could check in. The front desk attendant made a special arrangement for us so we wouldn't be late to the appointment. Our room was one of the cleanest and quietest we have ever stayed in despite it not being particularly new. The bed was comfortable and the continental breakfast was more than adequate with fresh fruit, pastries, bagels, bread for toasting, delicious coffee and more. This was one of our best hotel stays ever.
