Check in was easy and the desk attendant was very friendly and most helpful in identifying restaurants. The hotel has easy access to the interstate. We were upgraded to a suite and we appreciated the extra space, overall the room was clean and comfortable except the continuous fan did not work on hvac and road noise could be heard. However getting off the elevator or exiting the room the smell of cigarette smoke permiated the hallway even though the rooms were non smoking. The breakfast was just ok - the sausage gravy tasted like salty paste and looked like it had already had been eaten once - eggs were flavorless - coffee was great. Fortunately there was cereal, assorted pastries, breads, and A pancake machine. This was a reward night .. Not sure if I would stay here again.
