This is the first time that I've decided to stay here. I've decided to stay here because of it's "PRICE". I thought that I wouldn't be staying in the room much, so I wanted to stave some money on hotel room and spend it elsewhere.
The sound you open the door to your hotel room, you are basically inside your room already. The lay out it's kind of awkward since usually you get a 4 ~ 5 inch hall that leads to your room, this place doesn't work like that. The bathroom is super "WHITE" because there is no other color other than white. You get this brightness shined in your face while you take showers. I think it's their really bad attempt at hiding the fact that the bathrooms are extremely "old" and "outdated".
Even though this place is old, it's pretty high tech for the price. You get a flat screen TV with 60 some channels to watch. Weirdest yet, you get an "ipod/iphone" deck to charge your ipod and play your favorite music from your list while showering or sleeping.
Now, for every night you stay here, you get a complementary breakfast. I thought their breakfast was great consider it's "free". There was a lot of choices to choose from consider it's "free" or, more proper, complementary. They have "4" different types of bagels, white and white bread, 2 different breakfast burritos, waffles, hard boil eggs, chocolate and regular milk, yogurt, "4" types of cereals, "3" different types of coffee, and lots of choices for tea, AND other items. I gotta say, you gotta eat until you'll full and you can save yourself a meal on your vacation.
Would I come back here again??? Maybe, if it's still the best value place "cheap + clean + free breakfast" that I can find the next tie I travel. All depends.

One year I finally got smart and decided to stop paying $200 at the Ramada down the street because I simply couldn't justify facing the mean old lady again.
I found the Sandman to be slightly more reasonable at around $150 a night. Again, this is an outrageous price for a motel of this caliber but they know its Bimmerfest season and they don't really care if you don't want to pay a lot since they know they will be full either way.
The parking lot is a lot smaller and way more cramped, not good if you don't want any door dings so you can see all the BMW owners nervously reparking their cars over and over again to get that perfect few inches of space between each car. There is a pool of some sort but it looks pretty gross so I would not step foot into it. The rooms were old, musty, beds were hard but the showers were ok.
The whole experience was like a "this will do." Definitely not something you want to partake in while trying to vacation. Perhaps its cheaper during other times of the year, but if that's the case splurge and go elsewhere. I wouldn't recommend it here either but it's marginally better than the Ramada Limited.
