    Good

    Location was great. Room was quiet.

    Empty toothpaste box left on floor. Trash in waste basket from previous guests. No soap or shampoo with the complimentary toiletries available. TV set was flat screen but the brightness bleached out every show we watched and there was no way to adjust it with the remote.

    The price was really high for this hotel, even though it was nice. ALso I wish when the bed gets made, they stop putting the blanket only half way up in the bed.

    Poor tv options. No espn , it was listed on in room guide for tv, and no nesn, which in new england is unforgiveable. Wife had already used shower in room and we didn't really have time or I would have switched to a different hotel. When I called front desk they seemed indifferent that the basic channels for a hotel room weren't available . we weren't having an extended stay but this is disappointing. Wife just stopped working so we can travel more, while checking in saw promotion with incentive to stay multiple times and picked up promotional flyer with red bearded gut on it thinking we would be traveling more. Threw flyer away as I am not interested in your properties if this is the experience one can expect.

    After a rough start the team there were decent and the location was nice.

    The facilities just seemed like they haven't been taken care of. I understand that it's a budget hotel, but it shouldn't feel so cheap. I've stayed in budget hotels and they felt more than a budget hotel.

    The price was good and it was convenient to my work. It was close to anything that I may want. Booking was easy online.

    Wifi didn't work. Front desk was clear it was not theirs to fix...I should call the "number". I didn't need to sit on the phone with tech support :(. The bed was VERY firm...too firm for me.

    Very good

    close to airport, free shuttle service to airport, room was clean, staff friendly, didn't use pool but looked like families were enjoying indoor pool.

    While this is a budget type of hotel, the price was higher than similar hotels in other cities airports. I came in at night and glad to have shuttle from airport, but only vending machines, no room service- restaurant, would have enjoyed a hot meal.

    My flight was cancelled so I needed a place to stay for one night. The bed was very comfortable. The availability of airport shuttle was a bonus. The hamburger joint next store had good food.
