24 hour check in, but not listed that way
The app shows check in available until midnight, but my ride was going to be late. I called and no one answered. I emailed and the response came two days later. Turns out, they have 24 hour check in, which is awesome! Just wish the info was updated or they responded to my attempts at combination. After that wrinkle, there was so much fantastic: secure key card to the room, friendly staff, completely functional items in the room, and easy check out. A few improvements could be made: breakfast on time instead of ten minutes late, morning staff nicer to each other instead of bickering in front of guests, and freezer option for storing items. I'll stay here again if I'm in town because the value can't be beat.
