Summary: This hotel is set back from the main road, behind a gas station. You have to watch carefully for the hotel sign. Tight parking lot (we had a trailer, had to double park, and pull through the grass to get out in the morning). Rooms were OK, still had a smoking odor but not overly strong, higher noise than expected, some signs of aging of facility. Breakfast was fine.
The Good: The hotel is just off the freeway (once you find it). Rate (through Hotwire) was good in comparison to other hotels. Room was clean and spacious enough. Staff was very nice. Breakfast was good, not great, but what we expect from a free breakfast at a hotel.
The Bad: The parking situation was less than optimal. We pulled in about 10:30pm on a Friday and we had to double park since we had a trailer. Had to pull through the grass to a gravel road to get through as there was no way to turn around. The room we were given, even though it was non-smoking, had a smoking odor, not strong, but it was still there. Didn't really affect us though. There are some signs of age, with some cracks appearing in the bathroom, a drippy faucet handle, etc. Nothing huge was wrong, but these are signs that maintenance may be lacking. The breakfast area is not overly large and was quite crowded. Luckily found a table to eat with the family.
