These are the things we enjoyed about our recent stay here:
Great breakfast selection. We often stay at inexpensive hotels that include a continental or hot breakfast of some sort and this was one of the best we've been to for the price point. The hot food was actually decent and my daughter loved making a waffle each morning. The first morning of our stay, there was a wider variety of cereal but the 2nd and 3rd mornings it was very basic Special K, Raisin Bran, Corn Flakes, etc. Not crowded at all.
Large room size. The room was perfect size for our family. Still plenty of room to move around with the sofabed fully extended. Didn't use the kitchenette, but there was a microwave, a coffee pot with coffee, a refrigerator, cabinets and a sink. More than adequate to fix a few simple microwaveable meals or to bring a crockpot if you're planning on saving money on meals during your hotel stay.
Nice staff. Each person we came into contact with was nice and happy to help.
Area. The hotel is in an excellent area. Shares a parking lot with the movie theater and mexican restaurant. Wal-mart is across the street along with a strip mall. Lots of nearby restaurants and a grocery store. Everything you need is right here within a quarter mile radius.
Things this hotel could improve on:
The workout room is sad. I didn't expect a 5-star gym with a personal trainer, but a fan would be nice to help circulate the air. The treadmill squeaked something terrible with each step taken. Both bikes worked fine as far as the workout goes, but one was missing some buttons and the display didn't work properly. There is a TV in the room but I didn't turn it on. A mat and stability ball would be a great, inexpensive addition to the room. It was nice they provided towels and a laundry bin to place them in when finished so I didn't have to take a towel from my room. There is also water in the room.
The elevator inspection certificate was 2 months out of date. It's a bit of a creepy ride up, regardless of this but that is just my personal opinion as I have an aversion to small spaces like that. I took the stairs after the first ride on the elevator with no problem.
Minor issue - no one appeared to be manning the desk the morning we were checking out. I stood there for several minutes before an employee walked in as if she'd just arrived - jacket on, carrying her purse, came in through the front door as if she were just arriving. She helped me right away once she got there, but there isn't a bell to ring or any way that I saw to find an employee if you needed one.
Another minor issue - holes in the bed linens. Lots and lots of holes in the bed linens. They were clean, but holy and I don't mean religious. This didn't impact our use of them, but it did look bad.
Overall, I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to a friend who is looking for a clean, inexpensive place to stay in the Decatur area.
