I do not do a lot of traveling but one of my major concerns is the noise level at the motel. This motel was the quietest stay I have ever experienced. The continental breakfast was great and the staff was right there making sure everything remained full! Nice Jog!

The room was nice and the bathroom was kind of tiny. The housekeeping staff rudely awoke us by walking past the room complaining about having to climb up and down the stairs. My room mate and I were not pleased with their loud voices. Upon telling the front desk there was no apology made.

Very clean room. Beds are a little hard but all in all a nice place to stay. Love the shower....really big and lots of water pressure. Staff is nice and so was the price. Will Stay there again.

The conference hotel was way too expensive so we stayed here. We were coming in after the desk closed but they accommodated us. We opened the door to a beautiful room. For a king bed with a 2 person jacuzzi the price was well worth it. Clean, comfortable, and quiet.

“Make sure you bring an over the door hanger with you if you have hanging clothes. Ask for room away from top of stairs.”
  • Couldn't even hang clothes on the dresser knobs.
  • Nice big dresser..just no hooks for hanging clothes.
  • Shoots cold water out of the jets...bummer!
  • Chair a little outdated.
  • King room..super comfy bed.
