Previously had an excellent experience here in a perfectly appointed and maintained first-floor room. This time around, a severely leaking tub and high-beam lights from the parking lot that could not be blocked out due to lack of drapery coverage made for a less-than-optimal but still basically satisfactory stay. I tried out the fitness room, which was pleasant and well-appointed. Due to a mechanical failure there was a line of disgruntled coffee drinkers deprived of the morning java until well after the continental breakfast had started. The woman staffing the breakfast was not as pleasant or as organized as the super-attentive staffer on duty during our previous stay - for example, it would have been nice if we'd had spoons for our yogurt and cereal (we made do with forks). I remarked to my husband as we checked out the coffee situation that "the place must be under new management." A lovely manager materialized right behind me; she'd just arrived at around 6:30 a.m. and was trying to get the coffee perking. I was happy to talk to her about the leak in the bathroom and to hear that she's very intent on fixing any problems and ensuring that all guests have everything they need for a pleasant stay.
Last stay we ate salads from the nearby McDonalds. Apparently dinner salads are not on the menu anymore; the only thing we saw listed was a side salad and the staff on duty was too busy chatting with each other and/or visiting friends to pay any attention to our inquiries. We left and went next door to the Waffle House for dinner, which turned out to have healthier options than one might expect (I really enjoyed my grilled chicken salad). There is also an Italian restaurant a short drive away. We wanted to stay in walking distance, but may try it out if we visit this area in the future.
