“Well kept family hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2009

We traveled to a family reunion with our teenager, my daughter-in-law, and our infant grandson. We had two adjoining rooms, one with a microwave and refrigerator. The other room was a handicapped room with a rocking chair -- perfect for an infant. The facilities are well maintained, There is a fenced outdoor area with a playground and picnic tables. There is also an indoor pool and hot tub. We found the beds a little hard., but the service was excellent.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2007

This hotel is located right off the expressway (I-75)- very convenient for travelers stopping on business who need to get right back on the road in the morning. It is not close to the lake. It was a very good value at 54.99 per night, but don't expect anything fancy. It was designated a "pride" Super 8 which I was told meant that they met a higher standard to get that designation. It was very clean and well lit. The breakfast "buffet" consisted only of English muffins, doughnut holes and oatmeal packets, but again let me say that this hotel was very reasonably priced. The breakfast area/tables were clean, but the eating area is not huge. Staff at the front desk was very nice, helpful, and efficient! The "lobby" is more of a gift shop. A guest asked about pool hours and he was told they could swim as late as they like as long as they weren't loud, etc. I didn't check out the pool or hot tub as I got in very late and had to check out very early.
I always have a beef about not enough power outlets for my computer, and this was no exception. I had to unplug a lamp in order to use my laptop sitting on the bed. Internet worked very well by the way.

Fridge was cold, microwave also in the room but I didn't use it. Both looked new.

The worst thing I experienced is that I was in a room right across from the guest laundry- which was in the hall (not in an enclosed room). Despite the fact that there was a sign posted restricting use the washer and dryer after 10:00, a guest decided to use the washer. I told the woman at the desk about it in the morning and she said that she had not allowed the guest to use the dryer when she noticed what had happened. Anyway, thank goodness for fans in the rooms. It drowned out all hallway/laundry sounds.

This is a good value if you're looking for a safe, comfortable( but not plush) place to spend a night. I've often stayed across the street at the Holiday Inn Express. HIE is more expensive and it's really not that much better. I've reviewed that on this website as well.

  • Liked — location, price, overall value
  • Disliked — inconsiderate guest that used the wash machine after 10 pm
