This was a one night stop over heading back home. Lobby Staff was nice although we reserved two rooms we did not receive our package for being Gold members, we normally get water & chips. Maybe this happened because we made our reservations a few hours before we arrived? The hotel seemed very new. We had a room on the second floor & got our daughter a jacuzzi room on the 1st floor. Of course our daughter really enjoyed her room! Our room was very clean & really spacious just to be a standard room. (I will upload a few photos of the rooms! very nice!) The rooms came with a microwave, small coffee pot, large flat screen TV, and a medium sized refrigerator, which is larger than what I've seen in other hotels. Not a lot to choose from as far as restaurants in the area but desk staff pointed out a few options nearby, we ate at the Don Jose restaurant and it was good! Had a good night sleep, my husband mentioned he thought the bed was a bit hard but I slept well. From my other reviews you know I can quickly detect a room that has been smoked in and trust me the room had no smoke smell at all and I didn't smell any in the hallways so it is a 100% smoke free hotel! Breakfast was ok, I wish all hotels would dump the powdered eggs and cook real eggs! The bacon was too thin so it was crunchy! They have a nice pancake machine, the warm cinnamon rolls were great! Breakfast young lady was really nice ( she had blond curly hair & a great smile), I apologize to her for not getting her name as she went out of her way to make some bacon for me that was not crunchy -- Thank You so much, it made my experience so much better!!! Please IHG, give the breakfast staff the tools they need to be successful! Better ingredients, real eggs, & bacon that the staff can cook without it being burnt, would help make IHG the line that folks would look for, I know I would! I normally give 4 stars on hotel reviews but because the young lady at breakfast, I'm giving the highest review I can. Thanks to Breakfast Staff, we will definitely stop here again when we are in the area.
