Above average”

The room was cold and dank smelling. The bathroom smelled really bad. Maybe the building is going through renovations and the water was scheduled to shut off for a few hours. When I woke up the next morning, my sinuses were congested and I woke up with a hoarse voice. I checked out after one night there. I guess it was worth the price I had to stay per night, if you just need a place to lay your head down for a few hours of rest, and to get back on the road.

Excellent”

This hotel really lived up to the good reviews that I've read beforehand. They have free continental breakfast, they also have free goodies in the lobby like popcorn, cookies, coffee and free shuttle services to impt landmarks- subject to availability (ask lobby first). Room is huge; bed and pilliows are comfortable to sleep in- thus the hotel name! Wifi is good. the bathroom is also big. They have microwave inside but no water kettle. Location is okay tho far from downtown restaus but just walk across the street and there's Target and lots of other restaurant and shopping areas. They dont have room service nor a restaurant inside the hotel. so i just had my food delivered which isnt a hassle (if you dont want to go outside and eat). And lastly, special mention to the receptionist named Sunday! She was so accommodating and really friendly. Her personality is an add-on bonus to the nice perks you get while staying in their hotel!
