First off, you can see that management has been trying to improve this hotel. They have a strict non-smoking policy that you have to sign for and they are undergoing a significant renovation project. The hotel is also conveniently located right next to the interstate so its definitely an easy exit and easy stop for travelers.
The renovation left nothing usable in the lobby. Breakfast had to be served in one of the downstairs hotel rooms. They have a key activated security gate that is good for safety but instead somehow just shows how the area is unsafe. The pool in the back is in-between parking and the garbage that is not at all inviting to swim in. They had a notice in the bathroom that states "due to the popularity of our hotel items" that items in their rooms are available for purchase from the housekeeper and that when items are missing then they assume that guest have pre-approved the corresponding charges on their credit card. The worst was that the receptionist mentioned that the hotel has a strict non-smoking policy since, and I quote, "people used to smoke pot and management has been trying hard to get rid of the smell". That made me want to leave and run! I would have except I already paid for the place online sight unseen.
All in all, i appreciate the hotel management's efforts to improve the hotel and keep guests safe but I would not go back and stay in this hotel again.
