I organized my review into key points so that you can just to the topic you are interested in.
Getting there & location: It is very easy to get to the hotel and to get around the area. It is conveniently located near highways and on main roads loaded with restaurants and stores. I wouldn't try to jog in this area. That was a major disappointment for me because I enjoy jogging outside and hate the treadmill.
Parking: There isn't enough parking at this hotel. The hotel is two stories and everyone is squeezed into one tiny parking lot. The overflow parking lot was behind the building. The area was fenced, but I had to wonder how safe our car was in this area. We parked there and nothing happened to our car, but we also removed everything of value from the vehicle and didn't leave anything of value (CDs) in plan sight.
Cost: The price was right at $45 for a king bed, cable and wireless for one night.
Pool: The pool was outdoor and looked filthy. I'm glad I wasn't counting on it for exercise!
Other Amenities: This truly was a no frills hotel. The wifi was spotty and hardly strong enough to even connect to on the second day. It took thirty minutes just to connect to it the first time, and I am no wifi connect novice! I couldn't keep the connection long enough to read a client email and respond immediately. It was incredibly frustrating as I still had to work while on the trip and couldn't get a reliable signal. I couldn't even pick up a signal while reclining on the bed. How frustrating! The bathroom had two tiny soaps and one bottle of shampoo, so you should probably bring your own or be prepared to ask for more if traveling with children, as well. There were only enough regular (caffeinated) coffee grounds for one cup of coffee even though it was a two-person room. There was a hair drier, but I used my own.
Noise: For the most part, the area was quiet. A car alarm went off once, but someone immediately turned it off. As the parking lot is so tiny and right in front of the rooms, people can't really avoid parking lot noise, but it really isn't bad. I slept like a rock.
Free Breakfast: This was pitiful. The breakfast consisted of four cereals and prepackaged baked goods, such as Little Debbie brownies and sweet rolls. There was a tray with white bread stacked on it and packages of flavored oatmeal. The only highlight was the additional hot coffee as the rooms lacked enough for both of us to have a cup. There was as apple juice machine, too. We went to Denny's and had Gland Slams instead.
Overall: Although the price was right for this room, I wouldn't return. I have visited plenty of no frills hotels over the last ten years and never experienced one quite so stingy.
