My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night after attending a funeral in the area. Check-in was smooth and the price was good. We didn't need a luxury hotel, just a nice, clean room for the night. The room itself would be nice for a business traveller as it had a full kitchen: full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove, sink, microwave, pots & pans, etc. More than we needed, but like I said, the price was excellent. A few complaints: 1) it didn't look like the halls or our room had been vacuumed recently. The hallway on our floor had all kinds of strings, plastic pieces, small pieces of paper all over it. It didn't give us the warm fuzzies as we walked to our room. I found a candy wrapper on the floor beside the bed. 2) they don't serve breakfast at this hotel - I should have checked, but most hotels have some kind of breakfast these days 3) there is a large easy chair for relaxing - but it is jammed in between one side of the bed and the wall, which makes it awkward to get in the bed and in the middle of the night in the dark someone could stub a toe on it. There's just not enough room for it in the room.
The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable and we did get a good night's sleep.
