This was my first stay at this property and would stay again. The location was good for our purposes. It is on a service road right off I 10. The lobby was very nice and the gym which is across from the front desk had some nice newer equipment. My room was on the 3rd floor and I could hear highway noise at times but it was not enough to keep me up. I would recommend rooms away from the elevator to help reduce noise as the elevator announces "doors closing". The room was nice. I reserved a king room but none we were ready upon arrival so I took a two double room. The room had the nice touch of a ceiling fan in it. The rooms also have mini fridges and microwaves. My friends had a king room and those rooms have walk in showers in lieu of tubs as they double rooms have. The staff were friendly. A free breakfast buffet which was not that great is included at the attached sports grille. The breakfast consisted of eggs, grits (cold), sausage patties (very salty), cereals, toast and coffee. We skipped the free breakfast the 2nd morning.
