no complaints. breakfast was also great..survey suckefd

Bryan checked us in and was very friendly and also helpful with our questions as where to go for things to do, good eats appreciated all the info he was able to give to us.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Employees were very friendly and courteous. Hotel was very clean.

Shuttle free to event at Surf we attended . Beds were comfortable pool and hot tub were great as well as breakfast. Attached restaurant had great food also. Hospitality was great also and we will definitely return.

Stayed the evening of June 22, 2017. We were welcomed by the friendly staff, clean and welcoming lobby, and quick service. Room and bathroom was very clean. Temp in room was set to 68 degrees which was nice, even with it being a cooler day our. Location was great as we decided to eat at a restaurant down the street. Breakfast was good. Could have been a little warmer from the warm foods area but it still had great taste. Check out was quick and easy. Didn't use the pool or hot tub, but the area look very clean and maintained. Only issue we had was satellite going out but it was storming off and on so it's to be expected.

Clean, odor free, as described by website.

Nice hotel for the price. Conveniently located next to the interstate.

Staff was good, nice pool and hot tub. Very basic breakfast. There were some parts that were in need of repair and some really bad smells on first floor. Room was clean and modern but bed was off frame and had to be placed back on after it fell off.

Very good staff. Disappointed in restaurant remodeling and breakfast should last until 10am during the week

Friendly staff, clean room and good breakfast... Met our needs. Easy access from the highway

Good for one day business stay, helpful staff, free breakfast

I just stay for one day. It was a business trip. I would like to say more, but it was just an average stay in an average hotel

I was at the hotel for business in the area. The room was clean but the walls were thin. I could here the TV from the next room. Shower had good water pressure. Nice having restaurant on site.

Very relaxing in the pool and hot tub.

It was ok for sleeping. Unfortunately there is not much better to pick from in the area. Most other hotels are equal (but charge more) or go downhill in quality. It needs some major investment in remodeling and updating.

Room and hotel were very humid. There was a wet stop on the carpet in our room when we arrived. Three days later is was still wet!

Very nice accomodations for a small, charming town! Great breakfast, too!

We did not spend a lot of time at this hotel and didn't get to enjoy the extra's the hotel had to offer. What we did notice was the check-in and out was efficient. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Our stay was great.
