Pros: friendly staff, clean room, quiet during my stay (except for the weather, but I cannot pin that on the hotel). Other reviewers mentioned the train nearby, but I did not hear one and perhaps one can request a room farther from the tracks. The town I used to live in had a hotel by the tracks, and trains were required to use their whistle/horn at certain grade crossings.
Cons: poor signage from road! Even with gps guiding me it was not apparent where to turn and I wound up getting on the interstate instead of turning at the hotel entrance. Hotel shares entrance with Outback restaurant and bank building, but sign is unlit and not visible from roadway. Once inside the driveway, one is left to drive around until finding the hotel as if by surprise.
Fix the wifi! As soon as I got to my room, this gold elite member tried to connect to the premium wifi that is one of my few perks at this property. After entering name and room number, I got an error that the information was not found. After several tries, I contacted front desk and was told that only the slow free wifi was working and it had been that way for weeks! Unacceptable in this day and age, especially for frequent business travelers. Poor wifi on a consistent basis will affect my choice of a hotel.
