Recent guest reviews

When I arrived with a sleeping baby in the arms, there were only 2 people in front of me but then several others ended up cutting, the staff was slow and didn't know what was going on. Housekeeping was still out in the hall at 730pm. My sister and family also stayed here and couldn't get into their room until 530pm even though check in was 3pm. When I got to my room, it wasn't very clean but with the apparent lack of staff and clean rooms it had to do. There were cords hanging down the wall from the hanging tv that caused several issues with my 1.5 year old. It was nice the bedroom could be closed from the sitting area though the pull out couch was pretty loud and squeaky. You could smell cigarette smoke walking down the hall even though all the rooms said no smoking, the hotel was noisy till about midnight and could hear other rooms fairly well which was annoying. The pool was rather cold and not tub over hot. The breakfast had a pack of staffing Monday morning and the eggs tasted odd. The waffle iron wasn't turned on nor had batter Monday morning. I get it was a busy holiday weekend, I just expected more and a cleaner environment.

Very conveniently off the highway, but the bathroom needs an overhaul (painted over flaking paint which was, of course, flaking), the fixtures were grungy and the toilet was either dirty or stained. The bed wasn't very comfortable. Good breakfast as it goes and nice staff.

Huge spacious room, perfect for small family. Comfortable but could do with.some updating. There is a small fridge but it hides behind a tight fitting door with no handle. The room is really a suite with a large bedroom, a bathroom/narrow hall, then a living room with a pull out couch.

Hotel was comfortable but was dated. Looked like the rooms were clean and staff was friendly. The breakfast was nice.

This was a very pretty little in. It was clean, it was comfortable, and the staff was wonderful. The location was great. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

When booked online, asked for non-smoking. Room had a lingering trace of smoke odor. Noticed later that some rooms had No/Smoking signs on door. Ours did not. Good breakfast selection/taste. Biggest surprise was no elevator - after they gave us room on second floor. Had to leave some items in vehicle that we wanted in the room to protect from heat.

Are experienced there was very nice We only stayed there 1 night. The continental breakfast Was very nice. Nice pool and hot tub we really enjoyed our stay.

Really clean. That's all I ask for!

The room was very quiet and clean, and the staff was friendly. The hotel is away from the interstate and set back from the highway it fronts on, so traffic noise was no problem. The decor is homey. Excellent free hot breakfast. Appreciated the free wireless connection. This was a very good deal.

Excellent stay; everything was very clean, customer service, and people were great.
