I had occasion to use this hotel for a one night stay on Sunday night, Jan 23, 2011. I normally use this chain of hotels during my over the road travels because they are usually VERY fairly priced for the quality of room you are getting and the fact that their internet works excellently and is always included with the room charges. This particular room was ok as it was furnished with two double beds, 25 inch color TV with remote and cable service, small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blowdryer, and an iron/ironing board.
The problems I had with the room were the price I paid was just a little bit too high for the room IMO. I have stayed in better rooms at a considerably lower price within this same chain of hotels. Rooms that were more like suites with a separate room to serve as your "office" and a separate kitchen area. This room in question was just your typical straight shot from the door back to the vanity/bathroom area. In fact it looked a lot like the Motel 6 layout of their rooms.
The beds in my room were not very comfortable at all to sleep in for my taste. The mattresses were too firm and the pillows wayyy too soft in offering NO support whatsoever of your neck and head. My room was located real close to the front of the hotel and thus I was treated to the sounds of interstate truck traffic all night long as I laid trying to go to sleep. The hotel only had a coke machine to go along with the ice vending machine so if you desired a late night snack you were out of luck unless you felt up to walking a couple of thousand yards back up the interstate service road, (that was one way only btw), to the local Waffle House.
To sum it up, I would NOT recommend this hotel because of the price, & my stay at this hotel consisted of poor sleep quality due to the beds being very uncomfortable, and traffic noise from the nearby interstate along with very few options on snacks with no snack machine on the premises. One other thing. During this time of year having no pool was not an issue due to the cold weather. But during the summer months some families who travel with children would likely want such an amenity. This particular hotel did not have one. One last thing. According to this hotel chain's travel guide this hotel was rated as one of their "Best of the Best" in the rating system they use. I have stayed at other locations in this chain with lower ratings and found the rooms to be much better than the one I stayed in on the night in question.
