I stayed here overnight with my husband and 6 year old daughter, while on our way back from Florida. Check-in was quick and efficient. They hotel appears to be upgraded and in very good repair. When we checked into our room we noted that the carpet by the window a/c was wet and it appeared that the a/c was leaking from somewhere. We called the front desk and then got moved to another room and there was no other problems.
We had a two queen bed room, that had a nice flat screen TV, mini fridge, microwave and good sized bathroom. The room itself was a bit on the small size and the furniture was cramped in the room, the room also had one of the smallest closets I have ever seen. However, the room was very clean and the linens on the bed were also clean. The beds and pillows were adequate in comfort. The only criticism I have about the room is that both the sink and bathtub were very, very slow to drain of water. I don't know if this was an issue only with our room or the throughout the hotel.
The breakfast included with our room was the usual continental selection with various breads, cereals, one hot egg selection, and sausages. The breakfast room was very small and the food or supplies (ie utensils) were not replenished in a timely manner causing me to wait for eggs and then having to wait another 15 minutes until the sausage tray was also replenished. Maybe hot food items should be replenished at the same time to avoid this inconvenience?
The location of the hotel was good since it is right off the Hwy I95, however it is a minimum of 10 minutes away from any type of decent restaurants. There are only fast food restaurants near the hotel.
Overall it is a nice, clean and convenient hotel to stay for a one night stop-over. However, I would not stay at this hotel for any longer due to the cramped size of the room and closet, and also that there is nothing nearby the hotel for dining, shopping, or attractions.
