This definitely wouldn't have been our first pick, but we had traveled, were tired, it was late, and we actually stopped at several other nearby hotels and got back into the car because we didn't like the other places. So this review is relative to the other stops that were either dirty or felt unsafe. The first thing I liked was their customer service, we called the hotel from the road (late at night) and the front desk lady was super nice. She greeted us with the same attitude when we arrived. I also liked that they had a security guard who patrolled the grounds at night. Those things were about the highlight of the stay. Please remember, we arrived late at night-so we didn't see much of the grounds. Our room was located in a building towards the far back of the property. The building was old and felt like it was old. The carpets were worn and there was a musty smell to the entire building. Although the room was somewhat clean (surface clean), there was no escaping the musty smell. There were other features that just made the hotel and our room feel very old. The bathroom tiles were not very clean. The cap to the end of the hairdryer had popped off and was in the middle of the bathroom floor when we arrived. The tub was old- and had a standard shower curtain (some newer hotels have that curved bar for the shower curtain that provides more room-not this one). The furniture in the room was dated. The a/c filter could have been cleaned (it caused us to have allergy problems all night). The worst problem, however, was the noise level. We arrived fairly late. Even after our arrival, we heard noise most of the night. The walls were paper thin. Initially, we could hear a group near us talking and laughing loudly nearby. This went on for an hour or two. Later, it sounded like this group left- more talking, laughing, goodbyes, things moving in the hall, and car doors being shut- it sounded like they were all in the room with us. This was around 3:00 A.M. Under the circumstances, this hotel was better than some others nearby, but it felt more like a $50 hotel, not an $85 hotel. In the end, we were happy to find a hotel that felt safe and had friendly staff so that we could get off of the road.
