Although there only one night, I used the fridge and read on the love seat instead of in bed.That was nice for a change. I cannot comment on the breakfast as... More

Room was clean, beds were actually comfortable. Quiet, breakfast was decent, it also served some hot breakfast items. I would go again if I where in that area. Indoor pool is always good when you have kids.

Very nice and convenient, right off of 77. Very clean and.friendly staff. Loved the layout of the room and love the ceiling fan in the room. Would stay again. Not a great choice of restaurants in walking distance though, but pizza delivers, lol.

Nice facility. Welcoming front desk area. Entrance to hotel off of Garner Ferry is busy and hard to find due to many other hotels and business signs. Parking is lite. King bedroom had ceiling fan, pull out couch and two TVs. Bathroom big and comfortable. Will come back.

Nice clean hotel. Short drive to good restaurants. Staff was friendly and professional. My room was clean and comfortable. I did not get a chance to try the breakfast so I can't comment. Fitness room is very small with only cardio equipment.

Stayed here for a couple nights. Rooms were clean and had a mini fridge and microwave. Included breakfast has everything you need. The staff were extremely helpful. They let us watch the world series in the gathering area and brought everything we needed.
