Pros: Very accommodating and helpful staff - a big reason we like to stay here. Efficiently run and quiet. Fast complimentary WiFi. Clean, good housekeeping and has fridge. Well located, close to I-89. Those large cookies at check in. Decent furniture, furnishings, toiletries, good shower. They may not do it in future if constrained, but we were pleasantly surprised when they extended our check out time to 2:30 pm without extra charge on two occasions.
The beds aren't too firm, but comfortable. Room size isn't lavish, but adequate. The indoor pool is nice and the gym has free weights and exercise balls in addition to the usual cardio machines, though no strength training machine(s). The flat screen TV in room is a smallish 32", with one HBO premium channel. The breakfast is sit in and fairly pricey, not one of those lavish hot complimentary buffets as in some other hotel chains. They still have old style (expensive) room telephone rates (including for toll free calls exceeding 60 minutes) but that shouldn't be a problem in this cheap cell phone or Skype / VOIP era.
Overall we're very satisfied and happy with this hotel.
