Pros: The staff was very polite and accommodating and the rooms were very clean.
Cons: First room had no heat, sink clogged, disposal didn't work and no hot water. Second room much better but no coffee pot and fridge made loud noises all night long. Ice maker was on but never made ice.

Not what I was expecting...
Pros: Parking was easy, parking lot is well lit, hydration station for pets is located in lobby, several carts are available to transport luggage, lobby is bright and clean, service was excellent, cupboard was well stocked, washer and dryer are free to use, decor is up to date, room was spacious and stocked with necessities, beds; bedding; and pillows were comfortable, the gym has plenty of equipment .... I could go on and on.
Cons: A pool! Everything is great about this facility. The only thing that would make it better would be to have a pool.

DMV visit
Pros: Great location
Cons: My room wasn't ready at 3. I had to wait nearly 2 hours for a room and that wasn't cool. Christian was incredible though! His customer service skills were unbelievable!

Pros: The room was very spacious and had a full kitchenette which was a great surprise. I didn't need it, but it was a nice addition to the room. There was a full desk area as well which made the room feel very spacious. The bathroom was a good size as well, however there wasn't any hand soap. I am sure I could have asked at the front desk, but I just ended up using the bath soap. There was also an issue with my air conditioning (it wasn't working) and I was refunded a portion of my payment which was a nice bonus!
Cons: I arrived fairly late at night (about 11:30pm) and there was no one at the front desk. I waited about 5 minutes before someone arrived to check me in. She was very polite and let me know that the hotel was booked and she was the only one working. But it was a bit of an inconvenience to have to wait to check in and get to my room. The room also hadn't been inspected before I arrived, so that had to be done as I arrived as well. The air conditioner was broken with the cover on the floor, and very loud. It was disconnected for the length of my stay, but it caused the room to feel a bit musty. The location was also a bit further from the highway than I had anticipated.
