I have stayed here several times when traveling from Michigan to Texas and back. The staff is friendly and they have drinks in a small cooler near the desk as well as a small area with other snacks and personal items that you may have forgot. I
really love that they have movies to rent as well. You just take the case to the desk and can rent them for like $3. The rooms are always clean and having a microwave and fridge in the room is always a plus. The hotel is located right off of the interstate but you would never know it. I have never had an issue with traffic noise affecting my sleep. Breakfast is wonderful with hot sausage, bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc. I always plan my time to end up here for the night. Also, they have a lovely sun room with a pool and relaxing Jacuzzi tub. It's perfect for relaxing those stiff muscles after many hours on the road :) Stay here and you won't regret it!
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Just a short walk across the parking lot to the Cracker Barrel Restaurant, a Steakhouse/Bar, and gas station which is nice for picking up snacks for the road.
Stayed there during a businesses trip, good location, the room was very clean and tidy but you know, nothing super fancy. The have hot breakfast, this was below average in terms of variety and quality. You also can borrow a DVD to watch your stay
and their collection is actually not bad. Overall, not bad for the price
