If you don't care about breakfast, this would be a great place to stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff was pleasant, the price was reasonable, and the rooms were clean and of a nice size. There was no microwave or refrigerator in our room, but otherwise all amenities that one would expect were there. The only quirk in the room was that although there was a wall thermostat, it did not control the HVAC unit at all. The controls were the standard ones mounted on the unit. The unit worked fine, so I don't know if it was a replacement unit that didn't get reconnected to the thermostat or what. It was no problem, just a quirk. The hotel has a nice indoor pool, so that is a plus.
Everything was fine until we went to breakfast. The breakfast was poor in terms of the variety and quality of food. There was an employee who came and checked the area about every 10 minutes, but there just wasn't much there that we would want to eat, and we're not picky. The apples and oranges were over ripe, there were muffins, which I (diabetic) can not eat. There were 'make-your-own' waffles, which was probably the best thing available, but I can't eat those either. I did try the oatmeal, but it was awful, tasted like cardboard. There is an IHOP withing walking distance, so if you don't mind buying breakfast, there are options.
I would have rated this hotel "Very Good" (4) if they had a reasonable breakfast. If we are traveling through the area again, I would consider staying here again, and just plan to buy my breakfast elsewhere.
