We came across this hotel while on a cross country road trip. Called from the road to check availability, thankfully they had rooms available and we ended up with a suite. Late check-in was no problem, the staff was friendly, the hotel appears to be new and everything seems well kept and clean. The hotel is about ½ mile from the I40, our room was on the back side of the hotel and was quite. The suite had a wet bar area with a fridge and microwave. We had trouble with the microwave, you had to push the start button with lots of force to get it to start but the other buttons worked just fine.
The modern décor that HIE is using is nice, but I do have one complaint. If you are short (like I am) or have a younger child, it is difficult reaching the sink in the bathroom, especially when brushing your teeth. Maybe they should include a step stool in the bathroom to fix this issue.
Breakfast was included and there was a good selection of items. Staff was restocking frequently and making sure the area was clean. We were happy to find this place and would stay again if in the area.
