The hotel was a nice place to stay. The staff was friendly and courteous. The cookies were good, too. We stayed for 6 nights in two different rooms. We have 5 people (2 adults and 3 kids (3, 7, 10) and the first room got a little small for us. We had two beds and a roll-a-way in the first room and we upgraded to a suite for the last 3 nights (2 beds in one room and a sleeper sofa in another).
The rooms were very quiet. Couldn't hear the highway, kids in the next room, or the semi trucks at the truck stop next door.
The breakfast was the one let down. The waffles and oatmeal were good. The eggs had corn and peas in it one day. That is very odd to us. The potatoes were hard one day and the flavor of them was not good. The bacon was very thin and didn't have much flavor. Two days they had burritos. The tortillas were crispy and would break when trying to wrap the eggs, cheese, salsa, etc. One day they had biscuits and gravy. This was very good. The only thing I think they could have changed is having the biscuits already heated. Had to microwave the biscuits to soften them up (per their sign).
The breakfast also had multiple cereals, yogurt, bagels, muffins, and drinks (coffee, OJ, Apple Juice, Lemonade, water, and milk). My wife stated the muffins were "okay."
I would definitely stay here again.
