We stayed in this lovely, quiet hotel twice in a week while traveling back and forth through the area. Both times, we stopped and registered late at night -- just too tired to drive on. Both times, we were greeted cordially and were in a room sleeping soundly within minutes. (The customer service on the front end of the trip... More

This chain hotel gave us customer service far beyond that which one could usually expect from a hotel of this sort. My wife is thrilled with the job they did, enough to pester me to write this review of the property. They were very gracious to us and are definitely pet friendly.

I have always enjoyed this hotel on my way to Georgia for a quick overnight stay. They have free breakfast, and Aldi next door and are right off the freeway. I have found the rooms clean and my kids enjoy going for a swim as well.

This was the first time we have traveled with our two dogs and this hotel was listed as "pet friendly." It certainly was! We were warmly greeted upon check-in - even our two mutts. The room was excellent and on the first floor near a side entrance, making pet access easy. The additional pet fee was modest and lower than... More

Front desk staff was friendly and welcoming, room was clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast was one of the least appealing hotel breakfasts we've encountered, and breakfast attendant was not particularly accommodating or friendly. Raisin Bran dispenser was empty, "Sorry, we're out." French toast was the same consistency as the styrofoam plate, impossible to cut with plastic utensils. There was something... More
