This hotel is ok of you are just looking to spend the night and go to sleep. Service people are nice but they seem like they are clueless about the area. Again, for the location and the type of hotel, you can't complain since the people are nice, they just don't go above and beyond. The pool is nice, on the small side, and no hot tub. The hotel and rooms are super clean. Breakfast is not the best but it can get you going in the morning. They do have a variety of items, juices, milk, eggs, breads, etc. but they are all a bit like plastic. They have the only automatic pancake making machine I have ever seen. Makes two pancakes at a time. My 5 year old was fascinated by that and I think adults were too, including me. The pancakes did not have any flavor but that was besides the point. There is not much around the hotel. The rooms have a view of the highway or people's backyards. It takes about 10 minutes in either direction to get somewhere decent to eat. The rooms and hotel were very quiet during our stay. We were on the third floor. No refrigerator in the room. If you want one, it costs $10 per day, so that was a big bummer. The rooms are spacious but seem empty.
