I started staying here several years ago for business. I liked the location and prices and perks enough to stay and spend my own money.
I was there in late April for pleasure (Jimmy Buffett concert....) and last week for business. Both times JoAnn helped me and she was excellent. In April I needed to get a ride to the concert, and they had a shuttle service (for a fee, $30 RT) who they worked directly with. She got the van back in time for us to get to the show and then back from the show to the hotel. The outdoor amphitheater is about 2-3 miles north, so this is a nice deal. Otherwise you're paying at least $10 to park-and they limos and shuttles use a separate entrance, so they can bypass traffic. If you have any alcohol, you also can avoid that as an issue by using the service.
Anyway, the hotel rooms are always clean and quiet. The perks are outlined in other's posts here and are correct, great buffett and evening drinks on the house. Decent wifi in lobby and wired connection in the room. Check out is at 11am, which seems an hour early, but I was on the way out when housekeeping was knocking on my door at 11:00:01 am.
I would stay here again; I have had a problem or two that sent me to the front desk and it was always resolved. I could not even tell you what the issue was as they handled it promptly.
