    Another great reason to stay here: AT&T Wi-Fi is one of the many amenities here for guests. It’s fast and easy to connect.

    This hotel just barely meets the minimum expected service levels. Make it a 2nd or 3rd choice.

    No refrigerator or microwave which is pretty standard these days. Parking is $38!!! Across the street just $18. Lobby is under construction so not that impressed.

    Love the hotel, but would it kill them to put in a mini fridge and a microwave? Not everyone wants to eat downstairs. I would definitely stay here again. Who gives a crap about a flat screen?

    Really like this place. Good folks and reasonable for the quality. Only complaint: don't charge for wifi. That's just effing greedy guys. Internet is on par with hot running water. Seriously.

    Horrible hotel overall. Awful front desk service, slow, and disgusting. Don't stay here it's miserable. Small outdated tvs, old gym, bed bugs, and the rooms smell like cigarettes

    These are not brand standard beds. If it weren't for the typical Sheraton toiletries, I'd think I was at an unrenovated Choice hotel, but paying twice the price. Avoid.

    First they checked me into an occupied room and then the room smelled like a cab with 50 dangling air fresheners. Not quite a shithole, but staring at the precipice.

    AVOID THIS HOTEL! If my company didn't book this CHEAP FLEABAG ... Rude staff, dirty old rooms. My first room was facing a wall and on the roof level, reassigned by vending/ice machine and noise.
