No room for my confirmed reservation
I never got to stay, even though you confirmed my reservation, they said you overbooked them and they had no room.

Great customer service!
I called ahead due to our very late arrival. The gal was pleasant and told me exactly what to do when we arrived. She even explained to me how to get the ice maker in our room to work so we had fresh ice in the morning. Shower was hot and the room was pretty clean.

Good location and good hotel overall, no breakfast
Something I really, really liked was the kitchen being available. I see this as a big plus for a person who is traveling with family and trying to save some hard earned cash. The hotel is in good condition and in a good location. The only issue I had that night was my room neighbor who had a dog that didn't stop barking. They also serve no breakfast but not a huge inconvenience for me.
