I was very nervous when booking this hotel due to the negative reviews but decided to take a chance anyway since the accomodations matched our family's needs and were less expensive than any other hotel in the area.
My husband and I brought my parents and my 3 year old daughter and the hotel room was large enough to accomodate us all. In our suite there were 2 queens and a pull out sofa as well as a microwave and small fridge.
The rooms were very clean during our visit and the staff very helpful and courteous. Upon check in our AAA discount had not been issued, and the manager apologized and applied it to both nights rather than just the one we had been quoted.
The continental breakfast was not the best but did have bagels, cereal and some muffins. Good enough to hold everyone over till lunch.
The one complaint that we did have which has been mentioned many times is the pool. It is small which isn't such a problem but the level of chlorine smell is unbearable. When we opened the door to the pool area our eyes immediately began to sting. There were many families enjoying themselves but it scared me to subject my 3 year olds sensitive skin to those chemicals.
We would definitely use this hotel again but make sure if you decide to stay that you are getting the new section. We drove around the back and would not have wanted to stay at the old motor lodge. To avoid any confusion we even requested a written confirmation to make sure there would be no problems upon arrival and we received it in the mail within a couple of days.
