We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights over the holidays. It was quiet and comfortable, and the cleaning staff was amazing. My daughter had accidentally made a mess of the bathroom (an experiment - don't ask), and I was ready to pay for some ruined items, but they were able to salvage all but one towel.
The woman working the front desk on the evenings on Dec 26-29 was especially friendly and helpful. She even got me a cup of tea while I was waiting in the lobby for a relative.
Breakfast was plentiful and often restocked. There was some sort of youth convention or meeting during our last couple of days there, and most rooms had 4 or more people in them. The staff was well prepared with extra food, waffle machines, etc. They also had lots of signs out at the lobby, elevator, etc. outlining the rules - e.g. no more than 6 people to a room, remember to respect other guests, do not prop doors open with locks as this makes things loud, etc. All this prep seemed to work, as we were not bothered by excessive noise at all. (Certain Lake Placid Hotels during the Can Am hockey season, take note!!)
The indoor pool is fairly large and was very warm while we were there, maybe even too warm. The towels at the pool were tiny, so you may want to bring your own. We didn't need large towels, though, because the pool area was so warm.
The only area where we had some problems was the hotel shuttle. We were given different information about the hours of the shuttle by different staff people. Luckily, the driver was willing to take us even though we were told by the front desk person that day that it was too late. We would have arranged something else, but the driver the previous day had told us that it went until 10 pm.
I think the hotel has some sort of connection with Liberty (besides being next to campus). It looks like Liberty runs their vending machines at least. However, there is no obvious advertising of the school and its tenets, and non-Christians will feel welcome here.
