This is my first visit here. We were in town for a high school reunion. "Special room rate" was the AAA rate, which was about $90 with tax. The room had two queen beds.
Plus: Fairly new facility. Small, fenced outdoor pool. Nice lobby. Friendly folks. Small workout area. Small business center with printer. Clean room. Nice decor. CPAP friendly nightstand with outlet in lamp base. Desk with two chairs, doubling as eating area. Easy chair in corner. Cold AC. Huge flat screen TV mounted on wall with full swivel function. Free HDMI port to hook up iPad or laptop to watch movies. Nice bathroom. Good water pressure in shower. Free continental breakfast with cereals, yogurt, juices, waffle iron, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy. Always hot coffee in vacuum bottle. Fridge, microwave, iron, ironing board, and blow dryer in room. Comfortable mattress, 4 pillows per bed. Free WiFi.
Neutral: Funky smell in second flor hallway. Room is a bit dim, needs more overhead lighting.
I feel it is a bit overpriced.
Negative: Handicap parking is NOT the closest places to the front door (the only entrance). Guest laundry on second floor, but machines have out of order signs on them. Only ice machine is in lobby, and undersized.
