As mentioned before it is your typical TownePlace Suites and built identical to many of them across the country. Only other TPS we've stayed at was in Lombard, IL.
We do like TownePlace, very nice rooms and good service, acceptable prices. The thing is with this TPS, it is in a very difficult to get to location. If you're coming West on I-44, you need to get into a very narrow exit lane and then make three right turns before you can turn into the driveway. If you're coming East on I-44, there is no way of knowing where your exit is and you may end up passing it up and taking a 2 mile detour just to get back there. BTW, if you're coming East on I-44, it's the Mraz Lane exit and follow Highway Drive South to the light at Rudder Road. There are no signs telling you this.
Also, there are no services such as shopping and grocery stores within a 5 mile radius.
Also this hotel gets another demeritz for an extreme lack of breakfast. All you get is some wrapped up danishes, poptarts, and fruit. This is especially a disadvantage because there are no other food choices anywhere in the area.
So before getting settled in, make sure you buy food first and get good directions because it's still rather tough to get to any restaurants or grocery stores.
If you're not too picky with the difficulty accessing the hotel, Westbound I-44 (Eastbound I-44 is very easy to access), shopping, food, and lack of breakfast, then TPS is a great place to stay.
