I had an extended stay business trip in the area, and decided to give this hotel another try since I had received an email from management letting me know that the renovations were complete.
Breakfast: I would agree with some of the other reviewers that the breakfast needs a little more work. I generally eat early (6-630a), so the food was fresh, but it still wasn't the best I've had. For instance, the breakfast potatoes and bacon were always soggy and didn't seem properly prepared. Overall though, there was a good selection of items to choose from, so while my first go to items weren't too impressive, I still had plenty of options.
Dining: The evening dining menu doesn't have as many options as you may hope for, but the portions are generous so you won't leave feeling hungry. The only real complaint I had about the dinner was the steak -- it was a far cry from the typical filet migon you can order from anywhere else, but the rest of the menu items I tried during my stay were excellent. Robin was my server on a couple of nights and she's great, so I would recommend asking for her during your stay.
Rooms: My room was great during this trip. I had hoped that during their recent renovations they would update the "70's" style carpeting color and chairs, but alas they're still furnished with your normal carpeting and lazy chair that you would expect to see in older hotels. The bed however was very comfortable and made for a great night's rest. The room was very clean and properly maintained, so other than the aesthetics I mentioned, it was a great room! Additionally, for anyone planning for a night in, the rooms have LCD TVs with a rather good selection of channels. Movie prices are the typical ridiculously high amounts you see from LodgeNet so it was actually cheaper for me to go to the local movie theater instead.
Location: The hotel is nicely tucked away from the noises of the highway and local shopping centers, but still conveniently located. You have several restaurants, shopping centers, mall, and a movie theater, as well as being easy access to the highway.
Overall: I was very impressed with the updated lobby and the much needed improvement made to the dining areas and fitness center. The staff was great -- very helpful and friendly, so this stay was tremendous improvement from my last visit. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area, and will be using the hotel again for my future business trips.
