I called ahead and asked for a cot and they actually had it in the room! The springs were so bad that we took the mattress off and my son slept on the floor. It was kind of like the old hide a bed couch my parents had in the 60's. The room was clean, it was quiet and breakfast... More

I travel for work performing all over the state and have stayed in close to 70+ hotels/motels and this is the first one I have been inclined to write a review of.

Very nice, seemed clean - but at first entering room - smelled a lot of "Fabreeze" - later in the evening could smell dogs had been in there. We would prefer there being no "dog smell" in our room. Also - the next morning, there was a large dog in the lobby barking.

Loved the beds. Never slept so good at home. Pool was kept very clean. Rooms are very well maintained. Breakfast was more than I get any where else.Everywhere you look you can see they work hard to make you feel at home. Always asked us if they can do anything else for us.

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, and a wonderful breakfast. Check in was done quickly and I did not have to wait at all to check out. Very efficient! Internet was a little slower than I would like, but overall a great choice to stay.
