The first staff member that comes to mind is Eric. Extremely professional over the phone and when my family and I arrived. We were quickly checked in with no hiccups. The rooms were in good order and cleanliness was exceptional. I was expecting to find something wrong, but that didn't happen until the next morning during breakfast. The restaurant service... More

We booked one of the last Queen rooms on an extremely busy weekend, and were upgraded to a King room with whirlpool for free by the very kind manager. The room was clean, comfortable, and made our days on the road so much better. Check out is at a luxurious 12 noon. Would definitely recommend!

A clean room with good lighting and apparently freshly renovated spaces were a welcome stop on a road trip with a 4-yr old grandson. The pool was warm enough for him to be happy and not too big that we had to worry. The onsite restaurant offered good comfort food in a fresh space. While we had no time for... More

A recent renovation leaves this very up to date. Rooms were fresh and clean just as the outside of this building. Easy access from the freeway, a Walmart across the street and a Cracker Barrel just down the street takes care of anything you need for the evening.

Both areas had nice TVs. The living room area also had a desk, couch and chair. The room was nice... More
