Very roomy
The room was spacious and comfortable. There were 6 of us (5 adults, one almost adult) and we had plenty of room. The beds were a little hard for me but no one else complained.

Good hotel, nice location if you prefer to hear cars zipping by the interstate. Price was a little steep and should be reconsidered for guest traveling with family: )

Friendly front desk staff, horrible breakfast
When we booked our hotel for our family of 5, this was one of the last hotels available. The pros first: the front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. We arrived a day later than planned due to car issues and they adjusted our reservation so we checked in a day later. High marks for this from us, it helped us tremendously! They offered suggestions to activities and restaurants, which we loved as well! The bed was very comfortable and clean. The cons: the breakfast, and service of the employees managing it, were TERRIBLE! A hot breakfast was advertised and there wasn’t any hot breakfast, unless you are a fan of biscuits and gravy. Judging from the amount of guests who opened and closed the warmer without taking any, not many fans of this food. We stayed 6 days and only one day they had yogurt and muffins/danishes in addition to cereal, plain bagels and fruit. The other days they had just cereal, fruit and bagels. On the last two days, there wasn’t even cereal and when I asked the employee, she said they ran out of milk!? What? I asked about the yogurt or even dry oatmeal packets and she said “people were taking too many.” Wow! Maybe because there’s nothing else to eat, huh? If you care about breakfast, don’t book this hotel. Also, the bathroom floor was sticky and grimy. I had to wear shoes when I walked on it. The towels are poor quality and don’t really dry you off well.

Ok For the Price
I've stayed here a couple times now. It's a good spot for the price but the Wifi was really slow this last time. Not much for exterior CCTV but I didn't see any shattered car glass in parking lot so that's good.
