University ParkwayThis relatively modern, pet-friendly hotel will please most fans of chain hotels, offering amenities like free wireless internet, large and clean rooms, a basic breakfast, free newspaper, exercise facilities, indoor pool, and basic cable. For the price the rooms are of a higher quality than might be expected, but light sleepers beware: soundproofing was clearly not a consideration when the hotel was built, and even moderately noisy neighbors will keep you up at night.
