Family time
Was in town to visit family and attend church. The hotel was nice although it was undergoing renovations at the time we were there. I feel there is too much white in the main reception area - it looks like you walked into a white out blizzard. The employees were great, very nice. We didn't have any problems with the room, it was clean and cozy. The only "problem" I can give was there was no juice for breakfast because of the renovations. They could have gone to the local Publix and bought a gallon of orange juice and a liter of apple juice to serve with the wonderful breakfast menu.

I love the area that the hotel is in so convenient to everything really like the hotel it’s missing a little store or shop to get some things I think that’s really important . I don’t want to be told to go to the gas station down the road to get something they should be toiletries and other things that you normally carry .

This was a personal trip, yet I expected to work in the room. I paid extra for a corner room, so that my friend could sit on the couch (not the bed) to watch tv and relax while I was working. The TV in that area did not work. I reported it and was told that it would just take a couple of minutes to fix. After some time, it was almost 10, I called to the desk and asked that the tech not come back that night. It was too late. I reported it first thing in the morning again, stating that we would be staying until noon (as I had to work). The front desk clerk said that the manager was busy talking to the assistant manager (over a customer?) but that she would convey my message right away. No one ever contacted me. The TV was not fixed. The wifi did not work the entire entire stay. I do not recommend this hotel.
