Not like the pictures

The location was convient for us. We were very disappointed with the cleanliness. The place is run down and needs repairs. We would not have stayed here if the pictures showed the true look of the hotel and the rooms. There were nicer hotels in the area for a cheaper rate.

Not bad at all

Rooms are very spacious and clean and location is fabulous. They advertise that they have a gym but the equipment is very old and almost unusable....

Phenomenal for value!

In comparison to the other hotels and motels in the surrounding area, this had the best value and it is a perfect place to put your feet up for the night. The room was surprisingly clean, very quiet, and a great location right off the north way and next to the mall. The only thing to remember is to utilize the do not disturb sign or else housekeeping will wake you up very early!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The cheesecake factory for dinner, and the spa "complexions" as a great relaxing place to go. All within a 2 mile drive!

Good location

We were looking for a place with a good location, near the highway, in a good neighborhood, and close to restaurants. This place fit the bill. It was a good night's sleep after an excellent dinner at the steakhouse right next door. They had a light complimentary breakfast available in the morning. While the room was clean and comfortable it may have been a smoker's at some time in the past. It was not really bad but it was noticeable. That was only negative about the stay.

No problems!

Staff were polite, helpful, and the room was comfortable. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a clean place while on the road. I would go back there again if the opportunity presented itself again.
