        I left my luggage in office all day, twice: before my check-in and after

        It was clean and comfortable, no frills, right for the price.

        Location close to Amtrak. Was quiet and bed comfortable (after train was much appreciated!) Complimentary breakfast appreciated, but minimal. Coffee and bun/muffin.

        Pricing (for a Canadian) was claimed to be much less on Internet site. Was told needed some type of government rebate at check-in. Likely the time/effort to retrieve the extra $10 or so calculated by USA to rip off foreigners?

        Was very close to Union College where I was visiting my daughter. Good parking
