I booked this hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor. I have stayed at other hotels in the area over the years and this one has been the best so far.
I stayed 1 night at this hotel for a personal trip. I paid for the stay (no travel vouchers or points). I booked through Travelocity as a package with airfare and car.
It is very easy to get to/from the hotel, it is on a main road and right near the entrance to 95. As for restaurants and shopping, you do need a car to get around, but there is a lot to choose from up and down the main roads.
I had room 323 with a King Bed. I had called the hotel directly the morning of my arrival to verify my room was in order and pre-paid. I spoke with Helen and she asked while she had me if I had any room location preferences as she was getting ready to assign the rooms for the day. I requested a high floor away from the elevator and ice machine and that's what I got.
The room was a nice size.
The bathroom was large, a fair amount of room around the sink area for makeup bags, etc. The sink is outside the room with the shower/commode. The lighting is good for putting on makeup.
The hotel was very quiet. The lobby has some renovations going on but they are working around it. All you see is a big plastic sheet and they've moved the business center and breakfast to other area. No big deal.
The hvac was not terribly noisy. The room is a little cheesily decorated, but up to date and very clean and everything worked.
There was one person at the desk. Check-in and check-out were easy, no lines.
The hotel staff were all very pleasant and helpful. At breakfast there was always someone available to make sure the area was clean, items were filled and to answer questions or assist with equipment.
They had individual pre-made western omlettes, crockpot oatmeal with all the toppings you could want, and make-your-own Belgian waffles. Lots of cold cereal, fruit, yogurt and milk. A nice selection of breads and a toaster. A good, solid, standard breakfast set up. No need to go out for breakfast.
The parking lot is large and well lit.
No room service or restaurant.
My gps worked fine getting around the entire area. Cell phone service was perfect everywhere in the hotel. Did not use the internet while at the hotel. They do have a laptop for use and a printer, but the computer is super super slow. You will have a birthday getting to your airline website for your boarding pass to print out.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again if in the area.
