We stayed here one night as the concert we were attending with another couple was only a 15 minute drive away, and we didn't want to drive 3 hours late at night after the show. You can see the hotel from the main highway as you approach the area, but getting to it was a bit "different." Just trust your GPS and you'll get there, and don't be afraid to drive through the gas station parking lot to get to it.
Check-in was a breeze, and we were immediately impressed with the cleanliness of the front lobby. The rest of the hotel was similar in appearance - clean and modern. The room was nice and comfortable. The TV was a bit difficult to operate as it was DirecTV; I'm not used to changing satellite TV channels, and the TV was slow to respond to remote commands.
Breakfast was OK. My spouse didn't care for the appearance of the poached eggs in the plastic tray. They almost looked fake.
Speaking of food, two of the top 10 restaurants in the area are across the parking lot in a strip mall that you drive in front of to get to the hotel. One is an Italian place, the other is Mexican. Consider walking over there for a quick bite to eat.
Checkout was a breeze, and we left refreshed and relaxed. I would definitely stay here again if when I come back for another concert.
