Staff is always friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean. Nice variety of breakfast foods. I especially like the waffles.They also have eggs, bacon, or sausage and danish. The grounds are well kept and rooms are comfortable. Large flat screen TV.

The rooms are pretty standard, however the breakfast in morning has a variety of selections. The location is off main road with eating establishments within walking distance of the hotel. The beds are comfortable and the room décor is fairly standard.

My parents, brother and I have been in Ashland with my great-grandmother and family this weekend. Spent Friday night at Bellefonte hospital and when she was moved to hospice, got a hotel down the road. Very nice friendly staff. Comfy clean rooms. Laundry facility down the hall. It's right off the hwy but noise wasn't too bad at night. A few restaurants in walking distance, and we were glad to find a place close to the care center where we could shower and rest after an emotionally exhausting last dew days. Lady at front desk was very sweet and helpful, and I'm pretty sure we got the discount without even asking about it because our total for 4 people in 2 double beds was $106 tax included but on the door it says room rate is $139 for 4 people. Anyway, very very nice hotel even if we didn't get to use any facilities except for the laundry room all of the accommodations looked great. Checking out in the morning. Relaxing and letting sleep in this comfy bed take over now.

Nice comfortable room. I had a King room with bed, sofa, recliner, work table, and a large TV with good reception. Good selection of items at breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Located near several restaurants. The check in/check out process went smoothly. The staff were professional and friendly.

Stayed for just one night. Room was great. Very comfortable king bed, recliner in room.. Nice décor. Very clean. Wide screen TV, refridge., microwave, coffee maker (but, no tea). Nice size bathroom, Loved the plush towels. Good water pressure for shower. Only down side was noise barrier was just OK. At one point I heard men's voices (very brief) and heard someone pounce across the floor above me (but only once). I'd definitely stay again.
