Very convenient - close to hwy 41- in an area with a lot of stores and restaurants. Maybe not as charming as the hotels downtown- but ideal if you are looking for something child friendly and reasonably priced. Parking very convenient. And when you want to go downtown - it was an easy 10 minute ride.
The room and bathroom are generously sized. The high ceilings make the room feel even more spacious. Bathroom has a large vanity area and good shower. Flat screen TV.
The indoor pool is small and attached to a large whirlpool. This was great for our family with several small children, but could be pretty crowded if the hotel was full.
The breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, sausages, waffles, sweet rolls, cereal, yogurt, etc. The seating area is a decent size and we were easily able to get a table both days we were there. They kept the food well stocked. Only complaint - on Sunday morning the breakfast crowd was busier and by the time we ate at 8:30 - the garbage was overflowing.
We were on the first floor, which was a convenient walk to the pool and breakfast area. We did notice some noise from what we assume was the neighbors bathroom pipes. But for the most part - door slamming and talking noises were muted. Some noises from people walking overhead - so if that bothers you - there are elevators for the upper floors.
The front desk staff and housekeeping were all friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend to someone else.
