Nicest group of staff members at any hotel in my recent memory. They really care about their customers. I return here every month when I visit the area for business. Really nice facilities, recently renovated and the best people in the business!

This was our 5th stop on a grand tour from California to Upstate NY and it was one of the best nights on our journey. Our room was large, clean, well-suppled and very quiet. The breakfast was much better than the typical "free" breakfast one finds at roadside motels. The staff was very courteous and well-trained. They even found a... More

I've not stayed at this chain before, didn't know what to expect. I was delightfully surprised.

Nice place, very roomy, and clean. Bed was so-so comfortable but having the additional space in the size of the room was great. Very easy access to the highway made things nice. Decent breakfast with a few healthy choices. There was also a nice restaurant for dinner within the same parking lot. I thought the price was a little high.

This was our halfway stop on our vacation. This property was easy to get to, extremely quiet, and within walking distance of restaurants. When you walked into their front lobby, you were greeted not only by the staff, but the strong aroma of fresh baked cookies. I would recommend this facility to all.

The staff was courteous, our room was a king suite, the bed was comfortable, my daughter said even the sleeper sofa was comfortable. Loved the pillows! Breakfast was better than your standard free breakfast. We would definitely stay again.
