The hotel staff was very friendly and the check in process was lightening fast! The rooms and grounds were clean and well maintained. Our room was ground floor, facing the interstate and parking lot. It was still pretty quiet. The beds were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a busy time you had to wait in line making waffles. Coffee and... More

Only stayed here for one night but could have easily spent more nights here. The building was well presented and the reception area nice. The bed was comfortable, the shower powerful and all in all the room was pleasant, clean and inviting. Guests can eat a free continental breakfast which was nice. Theer is also free wi fi.

It was an older hotel but everything was so clean. The bed was comfortable. It was quiet. The breakfast was decent with hot options. They did run out of gravy >1 hour before breakfast ended at 9. Also, the yogurt was "plain" and unlabeled and accompanied with very unsweet fruit toppings ( sour weirdness)....but still satisfactory otherwise. The staff was... More

Dear kcann2355, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I apologize for the chlorine smell coming from the hot tub room. I have already had our maintenance crew address the issue. I will also look into the breakfast issue. We may have had to bring in an off brand yogurt due to a shortage from... More

Our room had nice furniture, a comfortable bed, nice towels, fridg and microwave. The breakfast was nice, except for the eggs....I think they were powdered. Others felt the eggs were awful also...other than that breakfast was good. Nice outdoor patio by the breakfast room to sit in the warmer weather. Several restaurants were close by, which was great. Also they... More

Convenient, clean, friendly...great value. Recommend for anyone looking for comfort and value. We even extended our stay. Breakfast was good, not great. Fridge, micro, good tv...everything needed for a nice, relaxing time after a day of sightseeing.

Greeted by Nicci (pronounced Nikki), my wife and I immediately felt welcome here. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and directions to good places to eat. What more do you need while on a road trip :) Decent rates, too.

After check in, we left to go see some sites, and got a call from the front desk clerk that the dog was barking excessively. We headed back to the hotel and the dog was... More

The room was ok, location off the highway. The toilet was moldy, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. This was a one night stop on our way back home from Colorado. It served it's purpose in that respect. The price was more than it should have been.
