First time staying at this chain. Decided to stay here based on TripAdvisor comments from others. We checked in very late. The clerk was efficient and very friendly. The hotel was pleasant and clean and smelled clean, too. The room was great. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. The bed linen and towels smelled clean and fresh. We did not take advantage of the hot breakfast, but it looked very nice and well-stocked as we checked out. The only reason I did not give a 5 rating is the fact that, since it is a non-smoking hotel, all the smokers hang out on the little porches on either side of the main entrance. Not a big deal with one or two, but one time there were five people puffing away and we had to walk through a cloud of smoke to get to the car. Our clothes stank of smoke for the rest of the day. If they could move the smokers away from the door, this place would be perfect!!!
