This review is best written as a pro/con input:
Pros: 1) Nice location. Close to lots of food/stores/activities (walking dist to food/stores, 2 mi from battlefield, nice walking paths, etc), 2) the staff was wonderful...helpful, engaged, efficient. 3) the rooms had many upgrades (newer furniture, granite counters, etc), 4) the breakfast was nice (both hot and cold items) 5) free Wifi and HBO, 6) comfortable bed and pillows (pillows being a problem at many places we stay...so it is a bigger deal than you might think)
Cons: 1) some of the finishing work (paint, caulk, etc) was a bit recklessly done after spending so much money on upgrades, 2) their next upgrades need to be for the amenities (I never found a fitness center, but don't remember if they advertised one, the microwave didn't work but they would have changed it out for us if we cared, the heat/air fan didn't work on the "constant fan" setting, but the temp control worked on autofan (so the fan went on and off whenever the unit turned on for temp control)...we turn the fan on constantly as background noise to drown out the highway and other outside car noises throughout the night, so for this stay, the fan intermittently turning on and off was as disturbing as the outside noise, adding one more noise to the mix). 3) parking was tight, but available. 4) the breakfast area was very small (only 3 or 4 small tables so people waited for a table or took food to the lobby or back to their room). Again, not a big deal, but not a warm/welcoming highlight either. 5) Parking is very tight (the spaces seem smaller than average and the parking lot is tight)
- I would, overall, recommend the hotel--especially for the price, unless one of the cons is a deal-breaker for you. We had family at another comparable hotel in the area and the problems there were different, but similar.
