Very happy here

I was very impressed with this motel. It is extremely clean,staff very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast every morning was a step above the usual 'continental breakfast' offering hot biscuits and gravy for instance. Loved the indoor pool and slide and easy access to the attractions.

Very Nice

Was pleasantly surprised with hotel quality, great room, very clean, modern, new furnishings. Breakfast was just OK, but I don't pick hotels for their free breakfast. Also had very nice looking indoor pool area that I'm sure families with children would enjoy.

Great Accomodation! A+

This hotel is underrated. It has the rooms all updated and decorated to please the traveler. The furniture is lovely and the bed linens superior. The extra effort to compete with the other hotels shows. Do not hesitate to book this hotel - the rooms are large and very nice. Overlook the smallish lobby and be confident in how nice the rooms are. Continental breakfast included, plus the airport shuttle stops here.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The inexpensive shuttle airport express van stops at this motel upon a simple phone call. This handy service is not advertised.

Close to Most

The only issues we had with staying here was that there should have been a discount for dealing with the construction, which woke us up with hammers around 7:30am. Then housekeeping woke us again at 9am. Don't expect the best morning sleep-in. Other than that, it was a great room!

Handy motel

Nice clean motel with good breakfast. Very handy if you are flying, as they let you park your car and have a free shuttle to airport.

Anniversary trip

We could have found a closer motel to the attractions we were visiting, but it was a nice place. Kids would love the curly slide with the pool. The place was clean and quiet, and we enjoyed it. The staff was very nice and helpful.
