While the service I received throughout my 5-day stay at the hotel was excellent on many levels, I wanted to highlight the exceptional service of the breakfast crew, Stacy and Jonathan. Not only were they consistently efficient, friendly and accommodating in their service, but they went out of their way to assist with taking used plates and cups to the trash receptacles, cleaning tables, asking how they could further assist, etc. Considering the exceptional service they offered, I feel compelled to give credit where credit is clearly due!

If you are looking for an upscale motel with professional staff and facilities, look no further. The opulence from the drive up to lobby and inside facilities is top notch and very impressive. The staff is professional in dress, appearance and demeaner. Best stay ever anywhere.

I'm not really one to leave reviews but I wanted to give a special shout out to Stacy in the dining room. Having stayed at this hotel a multitude of times over the last decade, Stacy is just the kind of employee that will help customers decide whether or not to book their next trip there. We were there for a few days last year and the girl serving at the breakfast buffet was so rude that I felt the need to report her to the manager. This visit was different. You are lucky to have Stacy-take good care of her to keep her! She really does take pride in her job and it shows. The one thing I would suggest is that her partner needs to be a little more upbeat to match her personality. Don't get me wrong, he was fine! Perhaps take a cue from Stacy and "bring it"! Thank you!

Traveling on motorcycles with friends. Their motorcycle had a break down stopped at the Harley Davidson dealer across the street for repairs. The HD needed all day to work on it so we walked across the street to the BW told them about the issue at hand. They let us check in at 11am without an extra charge. Ebony who was at the front desk was very helpful and understood. She made sure we everything we needed and got us into rooms without any issues. I would highly recommend this hotel to any travelers going though the area. Their is a sports bar on site for an evening meal, which is great.

Everyone from Nicky at the front desk, to the servers at breakfast, were welcoming and professional. The rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable, breakfast selection was good and pool looked sparkly clean. We were pleasantly surprised!
