We stayed here with minimum expectations but were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were really clean and updated. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Overall, we were shocked since we've stayed in this brand before and were underwhelmed. There is a nice indoor pool as well as free breakfast and wifi.

The hotel was very clean and up to date, room was very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. The fitness room was a little too warm, the pool and sauna were very nice. The breakfast was rather typical, the food was fresh and the dining room clean and well stocked. If our travels find us in the area again we... More

I only stayed about 9 hours in the hotel, most of it asleep. It was clean and comfortable with a decent complimentary breakfast. The staff was very helpful, check in and check out were very efficient. Overall a great hotel and an excellent value.

I stayed for one night for a business trip and had a wonderful experience. It was not the first time I used this hotel and have had great experiences previously. First and foremost, the room was very clean (a/c vent needed a dusting - to be picky) and was spacious. Great value for the money. Not a great view out... More

My family and I decided to book this hotel since it was the mid way point to Branson, MO. We were impressed with the friendly staff and how clean the hotel was during our stay. The morning breakfast was terrific.

Our room was clean and quiet (after several teenagers partying in the hall went to their rooms at 11:00 p.m.) The room was comfortable and the shower was excellent. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Even though we had rooms which faced the interstate, the room was quiet and a good night's sleep was had. Everything about this property is terrific, except maybe the teenaged girls who ruled over the pool and elevator (maybe they never saw either one). But as for the property is was clean,newly renovated, and the staff, including the manager (Keidrah)... More

This is the best location and priced hotel for our trip to visit our daughter in college. This was our third time staying here and each time the service and rooms are wonderful. The best part is breakfast. Hot oatmeal, chicken patties, biscuits, gravy, are just our favorites. I also enjoy the real plates, silverware and mugs, instead of plastic.
