We stayed here for several nights in July 15. The rooms were recently updated, quiet and had nice ice cold AC!! The front desk person (we checked in at 3am) was superbly helpful even bringing us the roll away bed immediately upon our check-in. Ice machines are located on every floor...a very nice option for us. Breakfast was great and...

We were in the area for a triathlon in New Hill, just down the highway. Location was perfect for us because we were leaving at 5:30am on a Saturday morning. They were setting up breakfast early, and the staff was nice enough when I asked for milk and a banana. They didn't make me feel like I was inconveniencing them....

We stayed for one night in June/2015. A little difficult to find without GPS because of somewhat hidden location. My kids really enjoyed the pool which was clean and well maintained, although small. Reasonable price and friendly staff. We would stay here again.

Stayed here for an event in town. Great service. The front desk called us the day of our arrival to see if we wanted the sofa bed made up for us. The front desk was helpful for suggesting pizza options in the area. J & S New York Pizza delivers to the hotel and has great food. Also check out...

The rooms are better than some I've been in. A/C seems to be working pretty hard both times I stayed(not very cold). This week room smelled a little moldy. The breakfast is larger than some I've stayed at. Staff are helpful and friendly. Hope u don't have to turn left when u leave

Stayed here for two nights when our air conditioner went out at home. Great stay, very comfortable.
