This was our second time staying there while on a long road trip. Consistently excellent. Hotel and rooms were spotless. New decor. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to the highway also.

My family and I stayed here on January 19th. Check-in was fast and as a Preferred Elite member we received an upgrade to a suite which added to the comfort of staying. My grandson and I enjoyed the swimming pool, which was on the cool side for me....possibly the heater was on a timer to conserve energy? The hot tub... More

Had a quite comfortable one-night stay on our way home from Florida. The highlight was chatting with Jean at breakfast! Sweetest lady you could meet! She kept that breakfast bar stocked and clean as well as chatted with guests and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. It was like you were visiting her in her own home. We drive... More

We were traveling back to Michigan from Florida and found the pool and hot tub to be very refreshing. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast selection in the morning knocked our socks off. The desk staff were very courteous and helpful. Thank you!

We traveled to Athens, Tennessee, for our niece's wedding. The hotel was pretty new & very clean. We hung out in the nice comfortable lobby often, which made it extra nice for the family to gather & visit:) Fresh cookies in the entryway were a welcome treat as well as hot coffee available all day & evening:) The rooms were...

On a quick lay over after traveling from Reno NV all day on way to Virginia. Desk clerk very direct and short when answering questions regarding my Priority standing and AARP rates. Was not asking for anything special just trying to obtain clear answers.

Sabrina had everything ready when we checked in about 9:30 on a Friday night for just one night. She was friendly, courteous and professional. The room was very large, well furnished and spotlessly clean. There were plenty of plug-ins for our electronic devices and that is always a plus. This hotel is really quiet and we slept well. The breakfast... More

The hotel is very conveniently located right off the highway and close to all the best area dining options. The only drawback is almost all of the parking is in the rear of the hotel and creates a bit of a walk and juggling of keys to get in. The staff was very friendly though. It was nice to pull...

We have stayed here before and stopped because our granddaughter lives nearby. Marsha, the desk clerk was efficient and very personable. When we couldn't get on the internet, she came down to our room to help. She didn't have any luck and went to call the technical support. We had the internet within less than five minutes. The staff was... More
