We were making an overnight stop on a long trip, and we chose this hotel simply out of convenience. We were pleasantly surprised to find lots of little things that made the stay more pleasant than the typical Interstate highway exit hotel. It's a nicer-looking building from the outside than most; the lobby is spacious; hallways are unusually wide; beds were extra comfortable; TV remote was the "Clean Remote", the type that can be easily sanitized (think about it!!); TV was a good sized flat panel; shower head was large, high type with plenty of waterflow; breakfast was unusually good and free -- waffle maker, pre-made Jimmy Dean breakfast biscuits, selection of breads, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, and Krispy Kreme donuts (glazed *and* chocolate frosted --yum). There was also an option for a custom-made omelet for $3 extra, which is a bargain. Our room was not luxurious, but it was clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. My favorite "pleasant surprise" was there were 3-outlet power strips both on the nightstand by the bedside, AND on the desk. For those of us who travel with multiple PCs, cell phones, a mi-fi card, and an iPad (OK, we're a bit over the top), it was great to have the extra plugs handy and not have to pull out furniture or crawl under things to find a place to plug things in. We didn't use the pool, but it looked very nice. And last of all, the hotel is about 500 yards off the interstate, and there's a nice big gas station between the hotel and the highway, so you can easily fill up the tank before getting back on the road, whichever direction you're going, without having to wait for a traffic light. All in all, a home run for the price.
