We stayed at this hotel while visiting family in the area. The hotel was nice enough, very close to interstate. Most of the staff members we encountered were very nice and helpful. The room was adequately sized, however not as clean as I would like. It wasn't horrible; but the housekeepers could stand to put in a bit more effort. The bed was very comfortable. (VERY) Slept well. One issue we did run into was overuse of air freshener. They had automatic sprayers set up in the hallway that literally were making us choke. We had to ask management to take them down, it was such a strong smell. At the time of our visit they had smoking rooms and non-smoking rooms on the same floor, which is no big deal. (Unsure what they have set up now) I guess they put the freshener out to combat smoke smell.....I will say there was absolutely zero smoke odor or haze but the smell of those fresheners was extremely overpowering. Too much, and I didn't feel they were needed. There literally was no indication this hotel even had smoking rooms. (I'm guessing they don't have many.) There isn't much area to walk around outside and I didn't feel safe doing so at night, (I blame the area of town-not the hotel). All in all, a nice hotel.
