In a great location if you want something fast food, gas, and convient stores! Was kinda far from the concert. This was discovered when we went to concert. Great time and fun was had by all who attended and stayed.

Took a road trip from Nebraska to Louisiana to see the Gulf. My parents used to always stay at BW hotels so we took a shot at this one. Very clean, well-cared for, quiet.
