I recently stayed here for two nights. The hotel is located just off I-229 and Louise Avenue adjacent to a McDonalds and a small strip mall with a Juice Stop, Panera, and a few other shops. Some fine dining restaurants are located nearby.
The check-in staff was friendly and the hotel grounds (exterior and interior) were very clean. There is a reception room for weddings, etc. and a small grill for meals. We did not dine here.
We had one of the Junior Suites. There was a separate bedroom, but no door separating it from the hallway and a small living area with a nice pull our double bed. There was a small fridge and coffeemaker. Each room had its own desk and television. The bathroom had a tub/shower combo and was between the living room and bed room. The pool was small (directly under our room) and the workout facility had nice Precor machines and some weights.
A couple of things I did not like - which may have been related to our room choice. First, the vent for the A/C was on the top of the wall opposite the bed (bedroom). When it was on, the cold air blew straight down on the bed, making it very cold. I kept getting up to turn it off, but then it would get too hot. Then, I'd wake up and turn it on and freeze. Bad design for certain. Also, the 3 junior suites are right above the pool. You could hear kids yelling, but it was not very loud. Something to consider though as the pool is open 5:00 am to 11:00 pm so depending on your preferences and the number of people using the pool, it has the potential to be disruptive. The parking is nice, but was full both nights we were there (Friday and Saturday) meaning I had to choose between parking on the opposite end of the hotel by the reception area (which was also busy with wedding receptions) or park in one of the many "compact only" spaces. I parked in the compact spaces with my SUV, half feeling guilty, and have mad that there were about 10 compact-only spaces, but zero cars in them. I felt better the next morning when half the spaces were taken and every single one was an SUV. I pondered the question of whether a hotel next to an interstate with no more than about 100 rooms would ever fill 10 compact spaces and, in fact, whether they were needed at all. The spots were the same size as the rest of the spots (all quite narrow).
All in all, I liked the hotel, trust the brand, and would stay here again but not in the suites.
