    Okay so I stayed here to take the July bar exam and for the price it is definitely worthwhile. The hotel was completely booked and so it is a good idea to keep that in mind--there may be a wait to check in and the restaurant (just a modest bar) will be overrun during the evenings. The hotel has a large parking lot which was good, and since everyone else is there for the same thing there were no noise problems on these days. The room itself was nothing glamorous but spacious and suitable for my purposes (exactly what you would expect at a 3-star hotel). The location is also convenient. It is a 25-30 minute walk to the Convention Center and they have 2 shuttles running constantly back and forth. I expected long lines for the shuttle but I didn't have that problem. One day I got right on and the other I had to wait about 15 minutes, and once you're on, it only takes about five minutes to get there--traffic is light. My only complaint would be that the wireless was a bit unreliable. I had some problems with the Internet being slow and after the first day everyone got back and tried to upload their essays at the same time and the Internet went down for 2 hours, which was really stressful since you have to upload the answers by a certain time. Overall there may be nicer hotels that are even closer to the Center but you will pay at least double what this place costs. Smooth stay so I would recommend this place.

    This is a nice older hotel with decent rooms and decent service. Not bad, but not remarkable. Service was relatively unknown, except for the fact they are willing and able to drive you to the convention center and other locations nearby. That was welcome. Other services were at the bare minimum.

  • Good place at a great value.

    Accomodations were good. The shuttle to downtown or where you needed to go was very convenient. Restaurant was somewhat pricey but the portions were large and the food was good. Staff was friendly. Computer access was appreciated. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Excellent place if your looking for comfort and good value, not luxury.
