We chose this particular hotel because of it's location. Just a couple miles down the road is the Morefield Gem Mine and we had plans to get to the mine early the next morning. We did not have any expectations for our stay except to have a bed to sleep in.
The hotel looks nice enough on the outside. The parking lot is in need of repair where it transitions from the parking lot for the shopping strip to the hotel entrance. Otherwise, I have no other comments about the exterior.
The check in process was easy and we had our keys within a few minutes. We prepaid for the accommodations through Choicehotels.com. One thing to note: We purchased a room with a "kitchen" and was given keys to a room that did not have a "stove". When we went back to the front desk to straighten this out, she let us know that you can have a room with either a stove top or a microwave. You cannot have both. We opted for the stove top, but did not use it. The stove top consist of two electric stove top elements. No oven.
The room was ok. Several items needed repairs in the room... the high speed data port could not be used due to being pushed all the way in the wall outlet, and the towel rack above the toilet was about to fall off the wall. I will say, though, that the heat/ A/C unit looked brand new and worked great!. Bed coverings were ok but look they they will need to be replaced soon. I was a little surprised that the bathroom counter was granite! Bathroom sink was nice and deep. Shower pressure and temps also very good.
The continental breakfast was pretty good. Consist of little muffins, make-your-own waffles (my daughter loved this), cold cereal, juice, coffee, and milk. No fruits or danish. We appreciated this free amenity.
Overall it appears the staff are making good attempts to keep the place running as best they can. One last comment I would make... they use copier paper with hand-written notes all over the place. The signs really cheapened the place in my opinion. I would make an investment for more permanent signs.
Being right next to a McDonalds restaurant on a Friday night I was concerned about possible noise during the night, but this was not a problem at all.
I would stay here again if we were to find ourselves in the area.
