There is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. We stayed there for a 7 nights while we dropped off our two youngest boys at college last week, and had no issues whatsoever with this establishment. The front desk personnel were very friendly and informative, the room was clean and comfortable (and even included a fridge and microwave), and the pool and hot tub were also clean and refreshing. I read the previous comments about bed bugs after we had already made our reservations, but I inspected EVERYTHING on, under and within 2 feet of the bed, with a magnifying glass no less, and found absolutely no evidence whatsoever of bed bugs. I also inspected my luggage upon return home last night and again found nothing. The free continental breakfast is fine if that's all you need, but we preferred something more robust each day. We did have waffles in the lobby on one morning and it was a bit cramped and busy, so it wasn't a quick in and out due to having to wait for each person to use the one waffle maker, but at any other time of the morning it probably would have been just fine. For those who complained that the breakfast had minimal offerings, what part of the definition of "continental breakfast" don't you get? This place is a clean, comfortable and affordably priced budget hotel, so don't stay here and then gripe that it's not the Hilton! That just makes YOU look bad, not the hotel. The only thing I'd recommend to this hotel is that they review and update the responses they have made to other people's TripAdvisor reviews. It looks like someone just copied and pasted the same response to almost every review, all on the same day, and the hotel's response calls most of the reviews "bullying". Furthermore, the copied and pasted reply often makes no sense in that it doesn't relate at all to what the reviewer said. That makes the hotel come across as the bullies, not the reviewer. So, I would reevaluate how that is being handled if I were in charge of customer relations. Again, though, I would absolutely stay here again.
