Stayed here one night traveling through. The hotel is dog friendly which is why we chose this hotel. Unfortunately we stopped and stayed during race weekend so one night was over $250 with tax. I would never dream to pay that amount of money for this hotel but we were stuck without many options. The location is nice since there are lots of restaurants close by and the area for pets out front is great. The “renovations” that they’ve apparently been doing for a while based on other reviews do not look complete- which is a little shocking to say the least. The hotel room itself was ok. Definitely not the cleanest hotel we’ve ever stayed in and at $250, I expected it to be well kept! We were high enough up we didn’t hear much noise from the highway. This hotel isn’t worth more than $100-$125 a night and unfortunately we got caught during a high demand weekend.

After a long day traveling in our RV, we opted to spend the evening in a hotel to get a good nights sleep before another long drive the next day. What a joke. Room 614 overlooks the interstate. Unless you sleep with earplugs, don’t stay on the backside of this hotel. I don’t know if you can hear the truck traffic from the front rooms, but we could have slept in our RV in a rest area and heard the exact same noise. Clean, check in was smooth, but not worth the money to stay here. Before you ask why we didn’t move rooms, after traveling 9 hours we just wanted to sleep. Heat was on in room and until the room came up to temperature, you couldn’t hear the traffic. Once heater turned off, all you could here was highway traffic. I inquired about occupancy rate at check out and was told 25%. If 3/4 of your rooms are empty, why not put guests as far away from a major interstate, as possible? Very disappointed.

Hotel is undergoing renovations but right now It is just a big, old hotel with just a few stray people staying there. Front desk staff told us all the proper 'this is closed and that has moved', but was not very welcoming. I have tons of club points and wasn't even offered a bottle of water. However, things were very quiet, the room was clean, and we did have a good night's sleep. Pet peeve: hotel rooms, like a King room, that will probably be rented by adults (no children) that still have a toilet that is about 15 inches off of the floor. Hope that as they are remodeling, they are putting in toilets that better suit anyone over 5'5" and those of us with aging bones and joints!

The website does not show or explain that they are under major construction to update the hotel. The bar and restaurant are closed so they opened a temporary set up in a conference room, which was a total joke. The website shows a nice bar and restaurant. Overall the room and hallways are outdated, run down and not clean. We would never stay here again.

We stayed one night. The hotel is under renovation so it was a little undone in areas. We were in a room with two queen beds. Room was clean. They have a small refrigerator and coffee maker. The hotel does have a pool. With this Covid stuff, they still offer breakfast but you need to pre-order it. They do have an area you can sit and eat.
