great stop along the way

We spent two nights here and found the room spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool area was wonderful and we wished we had time to use it.

Decent, good breakfast...

Staff put us next to Laundry room at first, when I asked for room change, he then put us next to a long-term residents who smoke out side of their room. I felt like I was being punished for requesting room change. I then asked for room change again, he put us back to laundry room area, luckily the noice wasn't bad after all. Other than the room situation, complimentary breakfast selection was 1 of the best I've seen with similar price range hotel room. Best part is that they charge 1-time fee for pet, not per night fee like other hotels...
