Overview: a very new, modern four story facility with internal halls located ¼ mile off of I 295 with approximately 130 rooms. Easy on off highway access. Single elevator service. Located in the same area are a McDonalds, Applebee’s and a Country Buffet, that are an easy walk. Plenty of surface parking. Individual room AC. Several meeting rooms. Three building access points from the parking lots. Bathing was shower only…no tub.
The Good: Check in excellent. Normally two employees on station. Compare front desk to a 5 star hotel. Received an upgrade to a suite….will not affect my review. Hotel was very crowded and I suspect the upgrade was a result of the # of nights booked. Rooms are modern design with a fridge. Very pleasing décor. No microwave. Entire facility is spotless. Rooms are quiet, no highway noise. Even though my room was only two from the elevator the only noise heard was a few muffled footsteps from the room above. Maid service excellent. Towels and sheets changed on request.
The Bad: Breakfast is cold food only. Bread, cereal, juice and coffee/tea, plus instant oatmeal. This may be a geographical area issue. Stayed in Carney’s Point once and breakfast was similar. Pillows….three on a king bed, all solid foam rubber. Like sleeping on a large soft brick. Limited cable channels plus 2 HBO stations. Windows do not open. Suspect that is the reason for no microwave….odors hang around. Could be I was over the lobby entrance roof and that is why the window did not open.
Picky stuff: The shower bar is set so close it is impossible to shower without constantly coming into contact with the shower curtain….and I am not a large man. Small space next to the sink for toiletries. There is a desk for make-up, ladies. Clothes storage is open cubes. Towels should grade sandpaper light.
Bottom Line: Great venue for the price point. Will definitely revisit if in the area again.
