Had to spend weekend here due to house problems.
First the good things:
This is a fairly new hotel so everything is in good shape. No stains on ceilings or carpets. Everything works in the room.
The indoor pool was small but great. Big hit with family
The attached restaurant (Kem's) was okay and convenient but tad pricey for what I got.
Located in a convenient area. Most of the better restaurants and shopping areas are located within a mile from hotel. Most are directly across the Interstate.
Had a little gedunk hidden behind check-in that was nice for snacking.
Now the bad:
Booked a non-smoking room and got a smoking room instead. Don't know why, because it didn't seem that booked. Boy, did it stink.
Because of the way street system is laid out, alot of traffic that missed turn to interstate on-ramp use parking lot as a turnaround. They are often irate and tend to speed within inches of you. Not the hotel's fault but something to be aware of.
