We stayed here during our first visit to Bristol for the spring race. I originally made the reservation because they were the only hotel not charging $300 a night for that weekend. Do understand that this WAS race weekend so the rates were pretty high but I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality. The front of the building is really nice and the grounds are well kept. They are in the same parking lot as the Holiday Inn Express, and there is a Wendy's and a Huddle House within walking distance. It's right off the highway so it's easy to see. The front desk guy was great- very friendly and efficient! (Sorry I don't remember his name right now) The lobby was very welcoming- there is a decent size flat screen TV and coffee and fruit laid out.
We arrived pretty late at night after a long road trip and I was exhausted so I just wanted to get to the room, take a shower, and get ready for the next day. There is a fridge and microwave in the room, as well as a coffee maker so we had somewhere to keep our beer cold! If we are only staying in a hotel for 1 or 2 nights we don't usually ask for maid service but they did leave a note on the door telling us that if we needed anything (towels, etc.) to come to the desk and ask for them. The room was clean but I did notice a little bit of water damage on the wallpaper- no big deal (and I am usually pretty picky). The bed was HUGE and super comfy! The pillows could have been a bit bigger and firmer though.
Breakfast was better than continental. They had eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and sausage gravy, and waffles. There was also cereal and the usual continental breakfast fare. It was good and saved us money since we didn't have to eat out.
Overall it was a great visit and I liked it so much I decided to stay there on my next trip. It will be a little sooner than I thought...if you are coming from MD down 81, be VERY CAREFUL of your speed. Got busted about 3 miles from the exit for the hotel...be aware that anything over 80 is considered reckless driving and they WILL pull you over and give you a summons to appear in court!
