"Staff and Condition of the Hotel."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I have had several issue with hotels when I travel. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The condition of the hotel was clean and the bonus of the kitchenette and larger refrigerator met all of my needs.

"Overnight Trip"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We were there on an overnight visit and were looking for a hotel within walking distance of restaurants and entertainment. We were pleased with the location, just a short walk, about 2 blocks, from the Five Points area. Very pleasant with the front desk staff and extra helpful cleaning staff. Parking area was small, but we didn't have a problem finding a spot. The room was clean and nicely appointed. The bed didn't really meet our expectations as it was rather hard and explains why we didn't rest well. Not a lot of street noise which I had expected as we had a room overlooking 20th Street. It was nice to look out of a window and not see a parking lot. Breakfast was served from 6:30 to 9:30 AM, not the best, but not too bad. Scrambled eggs, breakfast burritos, sausage, crispy potatoes with onions and peppers and assorted pastries. There were bananas and apples, but more fresh fruit would have been nice. The room was a little pricey, but it included parking and breakfast, so not a bad deal. Would stay again.
