This facility is a nice, family friendly hotel. Easy to get to from I-75. Close to restaurants and gas stops. Nice, clean pool. Nice breakfast bar. However, if your a heart healthy eater, not a great selection. But, I will stay again when passing through.

This place is absolutely amazing! The rooms are very spacious. I would post more pictures but I have already unpacked. The staff are extremely friendly and caring. They give snacks in the afternoon.

It was a late night stop. Had booked online less than 30 minutes earlier after checking out hotels on TripAdvisor. Hotel was expecting us. Receptionist was welcoming. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Pillows were great, which isn't always the case. Housekeeping in the hallway, pleasantly greeted us.
