Needed to find a place to stay in the area to attend a family event and found this location very convenient and a great value, with pricing in the mid 60's for each night. This two-story hotel looked relatively new and clean. Located right off route 36, traffic could be heard constantly and the hotel offered no views, yet, location and pricing outweighed those complaints. Liberal check-in time of 1PM and check-out time 11AM.
The hotel offered free wi-fi, local calls, parking, daily continental breakfast and all the other usual amenities great for families traveling such as hairdryer, in-room coffee, microwave, refrigerator, iron, pool, hot tub. Our first floor room contained an under-window air conditioner and heater with a slight musty odor, but the room was very, very clean. Unfortunately, the adjoining rooms did NOT have connecting rooms.
The hotel has a strict "no smoking" policy, with a $250 fine for violation. Pets are allowed on a leash. The hotel has a strict "no party" policy and will require guests to sign a contract upon checking in to agree with the rules. Cameras are placed in the corridor's entrances for webcam security. I am a fan of decorum and safety for the sake of all guests' stays. However, hotels are in the guest business, which is why I think my biggest criticism was the unfriendliness of the staff during our 2 day stay. Staff offered no smiles, no greetings, and we were stared at whenever we left the room (as if the staff was told to be suspicious of all guests or really hated their jobs).
Nevertheless, great value at the mid 60's price.
