This place is tired and worn. It's shoe-horned into a small parcel next to the highway. It has exterior access to all rooms. I won't hold this against the staff, but despite my on-line reservation for a non-smoking room, we were assigned a smoking room. They were able to re-assign us to a non-smoking room for one night, but we... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that the travel agent you used booked a smoking room. I would always recommend booking directly with a hotel directly to make sure you get what you want. Online hotel booking companies are unable to guarantee requests only a room. We would have been able to change... More

The hotel lobby was beautiful and the front desk clerk extremely friendly and professional. The room was very clean and spacious. The breakfast was good and the seating in the breakfast nook was plenty and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

We checked in and immediately was pleased with the service to quickly receive an extra bath towel set and a couple of pool towels for the kids to swim in the pool. The room was a little small but okay for the one night. The upkeep could use improvement, paint in the bathroom was peeled in places, hinges were rusted,... More

Booked this Hotel the day I was staying. Have been here before so I know how it is. Asked them to put me up front so I could keep an eye on my 19478 Rat Rod which they were very accommodating. Very secure area in nice location just off I-70. Well worth the stay!

Nice overnight stay; clean room, grounds, lobby, and dining room. Also all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. A small accommodation that meant a lot was that the small fridge was actually behind a door in the entertainment center so we didn't have to listen to fridge noises all night. For fellow travelers who enjoy BW waffle makers,... More

Breakfast to die for. Biscuits, gravy, sausage, scrambled eggs, fresh pancakes, strawberries, whip cream, cold & hot cereal, fresh fruit, juice, milk & more. I have a walking disability & they took care of my needs right away. They had free computer use in the lobby & lots of sightseeing information.
