Throughout our weeklong trip I was looking forward to staying here for our final night because I had read such positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, I was disappointed from beginning to end. When we pulled up late at night after a long drive and walked in, bleary-eyed, to check in, the woman at the desk was on a phone call with a guest who was having trouble logging into the internet. She didn't look up from her call to acknowledge us nor did she ask the person to hold for a second in order to tell us she would be with us soon. She just ignored us and kept talking and talking. When she finally gave us our key and we went up to the room, my heart fell. I had splurged for a "suite" with 2 doubles and a couch. It was NOT worth the splurge. It was incredibly overpriced for a basic chain hotel room with 2 beds squeezed into an awkwardly shaped space. The tiny bed I was supposed to share with my husband (the other bed was for our daughter) had a very wheezy air-conditioning unit hanging over the covers and blowing into our faces. It was so loud and uncomfortable, I chose to sleep on the lumpy pull out sofa. The bathroom was really just a triangulated cut out of the room, right next to the beds, accessed by two doors. The layout was strange and uncomfortable. The breakfast was very basic. The location is nothing special except if you want to do suburban shopping at Walmart. I would not stay here again.
