"The cleanliness was good and the room comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was good. However the noise was very loud at times from the trucks out front, primarily diesel trucks. I'd actually recommend that staff stay in the rooms overnight to see what the problem is. It was like there was no insulation in the walls at all. Also parking would have been a concern if I arrived any later than I did or if there had been more guests."
