The best feature of this place is the swimming area, which is a large, cathedral-ceiling roomed with wood beams and roof. It has a typical hotel-sized swimming pool (fine for splashing around, not for serious swimming), a hot tub, and a room with a treadmill and stationary bike.
The lobby has a lodge feel to it, wit a large stone fireplace on one side and the rusticated kitchen area on the other.
The breakfast is a pretty typcial self-serve breakfast. Do it yourself waffle maker, a couple kinds of cereal, yogurt, donuts, not very good bagels, juice, milk and a fruit basket. I've seen larger selection at some other places, and I've seen worse. This is average.
The furniture in the room is cheap motel. The long, low dresser that has the TV on it appears to have 4 drawers, but it really has only 2 because the bottom 2 are nothing but false fronts. There is no closet or amroire. Just a 3 foot clothes bar stuck on the wall with the sort of hangers that discourage hanger theft.
The bathroom again is cheap motel. Inexpensive single-piece fiberglas tub. There wasn't even a spare role of toilet paper, but that may have just been an oversight.
The beds were on the hard side, and I didn't find them very comfortable.
The chain's claim to fame is that their rooms are very quiet and you won't hear your neighbors. I didn't hear anyone else, so that seems true.
The place offers wireless internet. Signal strength wasn't great, but it worked.
I was glad my wife didn't come on this trip, because right behind the hotel is a large factory with smokestacks belching steam or something. She would have been very dismayed to see it. Our room faced the front of the hotel, so we didn't see it except when driving to or from the hotel. FYI, it is the factory of PB Leiner, which "produces porcine gelatin and a full range of porcine hydrolysates." I don't know if it was responsible for the unpleasant oder outside (but not evident inside) the hotel one afternoon, or if that was from something else.
This area, by the way, has a large number of cheap motels mixed in with light (and occasionally heavy) industry. Not a beauty spot.
An irritant for this hotel is that they charge $1/day for the safe in the room. You can have the charge removed at checkout, but I think they count on people not doing so. When you check out, they don't show you the bill, but ask, "do you want to leave it on your credit card?" Normally you say yes, and only as you are walking away from the desk (or in the car driving away) do you see the charge on your statement. If you are like me, you are annoyed at being snookered, but it is not worth going back to the desk for $2.
Overall, I would say that for $72/night for a room with 2 double beds, it was a bit overpriced. If it wasn't for the nice pool area, I would have been quite annoyed. If I was staying in the area again, I would look into hotels along interstate 74 because it is less industrial and a bit closer to downtown.
