The main reason I booked this hotel was because it offered as an amenity a heated pool/spa. We checked in about 6:30 pm and actually ordered pizza instead of going out because we wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to swim. After we ate, we got changed and went downstairs, to an empty pool! There were no signs in the lobby or hallway to indicate the pool was closed, so it was not only a hassle, but embarrassing.
The workout equipment was in the pool area, too, so I'm guessing there was no gym, either.
The room itself, we had a suite, was unremarkable. If it hadn't had a view of a next-door pond, it would have been claustrophobic. The window was dirty, though. In the room, the carpet was pretty stained. The king-sized bed was semi-comfortable with standard, low-end motel bedding. No extra pillows or blankets. Literally, there was one top sheet & thin bedspread, with no blankets on the bed. The closet had one blanket & a set of sheets for the bumpy pull-out sofa in the first little area.
This motel is nothing short of unremarkable, and when you consider there are many other chain motels to choose from in the area, there is no reason to stay here. We only stayed for the indoor, heated pool.......& it was empty!
BTW - there are no restaurants within walking distance.
