We were on our way to Asheville, NC but due to traffic problems we ended up having to stop along the way. We were greeted by a friendly desk clerk and our rooms were clean and ready for a quiet nights sleep.

Stayed for just one night. Very comfortable bed, average breakfast. In the midst of the mall area where there are lots of restaurants. Lots of traffic in the area as we were there on a Sat. night so plan accordingly.
