we had a room around the corner in a nook. despite a bachelor's party in the main hall, we never heard a sound even though it was a Friday night and the hotel was full. breakfast was a choice of buffet or full service either of which was excellent.b

We booked through Hotels.com and were placed in a smoking room. They said they had nothing else available and they would not issue a credit or refund for the second night so that we could move elsewhere. The room was in the basement and disconnected from the main part of the hotel. Dirty, dingy and horribly stinky. Nor was our... More

I told them that there was a glitch in the dates that I reserved and Mike the manager solved the issue in about 30 seconds. I also needed to check in early, Again, not an issue, solved immediately. When I arrived, there... More

My family stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. No complaints whatsoever. It was clean, comfortable and convenient to where we needed to be. The hotel accommodated my request for two adjoining rooms so my mother could stay next to us. Breakfast is not included in the rate, and we did not eat at the restaurant, so... More

Nice staff - especially the lady at the front desk. Room was clean and ready to go. Restaurant had a delicious breakfast. Would stay here again for sure. Central to all the things we wanted to do. The Indian restaurant close to the hotel was very good.

Comfortable bed & choice of pillows. Good reading lamp next to comfortable chair & ottoman. Free wi-fi. Good shower pressure and temperature. Noisy A/C, esp. when it shut off. Breakfast buffet - usual - scrambled eggs, bacon (nice & crispy);, potatoes, biscuits, gravy and grits.

A group of family members stayed here for graduation weekend. Although this facility looks very dated, the rooms were spacious, clean, and had comfortable beds. This is located on a main drag (Route 29), but the rooms were quiet. There was also no difficulty at all exiting and entering the grounds, and there was ample parking even though the hotel... More
