Large comfy bed, nice friendly and helpful staff, delicious and well priced meals. They even made an unscheduled van trip to the airport for us after delays. There is also a Jimmy John's across the road. Thank you

Hotel is clean and well kept. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is not included which is disappointing for the price of the rooms and being a premium member. There is no snack counter/cupboard where you can charge to the room

This hotel was comfortable and quiet. I didn't have time to use the gym or pool so I can't comment on this. They do have a restaurant on site, but again we didn't have the time. The room was clean and I like the shower vs a bathtub.

No breakfast included with room charge. Staff friendly and helpful. Room phones and TV remote did not work but room was nice, clean, beds were comfortable with pillows labeled soft or firm. Could hear people above, floor seems to easily transmit sound from above us. Walmart and Gas Station nearby. Tesla Car Charge stations available at the hotel.
