The positive side: The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. Location is great!
The negative: The basic price was $129, then comes the extras! I paid a little over $170 for a night's stay in this hotel. Parking is $18 plus tax to park in the hotel garage! The room is nice, but obviously in need of some updating. The lack of electrical outlets was one problem. When I pulled the nightstand out to see if there was one available, I found an extension cord over loaded with lamps, etc.. plugged in. It seemed a little like a fire hazard.
Overall, the hotel was okay, but NOT worth the price attached to it.
