The bed was comfortable, room was nice, breakfast was plentiful and varied. Just an overnight on the way to somewhere else but no complaints. We were comparing prices and theirs beat all the heck out of Hampton. It was very convenient to the highway.

My husband and I spent a night at this hotel during a recent trip. It was very nice, we enjoyed the hot tub and pool. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the hotel was clean and quiet. I'd definitely recommend it.

Stayed here overnight on our way to Arkansas. Arrived at 10pm and hotel was very quiet. Reception was pleasant and helpful. Room was nice with a DVD player, flat screen TV, refrigerator, and microwave. King size bed comfortable with soft, fitted sheets. Sink located outside bathroom which is helpful with two people getting ready. We checked out early to get back on the road, but overall nice stay and highly recommend.

Overall a nice job. Continental breakfast was above average. The hotel was easy to get to, right off I-57. I could have done without the staff smoking out back though. The room did also not cool as much as I would like it too.

Room Tip: We booked our trip on hotwire to save a few dollars.

The hotel itself was above average. Cleanliness was good, room comfort was ok, breakfast was decent but understaffed and pool, hot tub and work out facilities were nice.

The staff however was slow, unfriendly and rude. We will never stay at this hotel again based upon the staff. We arrived around 9 PM after a long day of travel. At about 9:45 PM we tried to use the pool and hot tub. There were no towels available and my wife had to wait 10 minutes to get them. After only five minutes of use we were rudley told to leave the pool area. This was at 10 PM on a Friday night! We politely asked for a few extra minutes due to the fact that we had to wait 10 minutes to get towels and were rudley told "No". In fact the hotel employee actually starred us down the whole time that we got out of the pool and dryed off. My wife and I are forty-nine year old professional adults and were treated as if we were some wild drunken college kids on spring break! Due to this treatment we will never stay in this hotel again.

Very friendly evening desk clerk - Selina. Night clerk (a man) not very personable and kind of rude. (Am giving Very Good rating instead of Excellent rating on Service simply because of the night clerk). Very clean rooms with large TV, refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, iron and ironing board - does not smell a bit like smoke! Breakfast as you expect at most hotel chains like this - small buffet style with eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, yogurt, hard boiled eggs (haven't seen this at other hotels), milk, juice, cereal (Restaurant - I am giving an average rating even though I wouldn't call the breakfast a restaurant, the food is still what one would expect it to be for a hotel chain). Has a pool and hot tub but did not use. Booking direct with the hotel instead of through a website will get you a better deal - I see one traveler has trouble using Expedia. I had originally booked the room through price line but when I got here and explained that I would be a frequent business traveler they worked with me on a better rate.

Clean and efficient. We enjoyed our stay & it was close to everything we needed to do as far as a quick overnight stay goes. No complaints, we will stay at this place again if given the opportunity...
