The Ina Rd. overcrossing is currently closed, which makes getting to this property a bit difficult, but it's worth it - add 10 minutes to your travel estimate due to the weird way the road is set up. And then prepared to have a great experience. It would be nice, especially on weekends, if breakfast could go until 10 rather than being cut off at 9, but if you get there on time it's a good one, with freshly-prepared hot dishes and a great selection of other breakfast items. No "continental" breakfast here!
The room was adequately-sized, but there was no place to put our suitcase but the bed (sometimes my wife likes to live out of the suitcase), not even the typical fold-up stand that many hotels have.
The property faces a TraveLodge to its "rear," and the parking spaces are split by side by the properties; those spaces on that side almost always have some open, and there is a gate which brings to to the elevator lobby access via a night-locked outside door (room key opens it). less
