The approach to the hotel is through a very nice, wooded, office park/commercial area; but once you get there, the reality sets in. The hotel faces the back of a shopping center, or something similar, & an expressway. That's what you get to look at, if you decide to use the pool area. The suite we had was roomy enough & very quiet, but there were some issues with the bathroom area: peeling wallpaper & mold on the ceiling that had been painted over but was reemerging (They should have gotten rid of it first, the last time they painted.). Saving graces for this hotel: (1) the staff -- all are great & very willing to help in any way; and (2) the breakfasts -- the cooks put a huge amount of effort into their work & it shows. On these two points, we were very pleased. The hotel is also very close to a number of major roads & front desk staff are always willing to help out with directions & a smile, especially Britteny (sp?), the Assistant General Manager.
