I slept very poorly here. There are some things I didn't like that were dictated by corporate policy and they can't change: (a) Pillows were so large and hard they gave you a neck cramp if you could sleep on them at all. (b) Soap was 'sugared citrus' scent - smelled like cheap PEZ candies - and were in wrappers that were painful to unwrap with arthritis. There were other things which local attention to details could have prevented: (1) Room was stifling hot from its heater. Adjustment to cooler or hotter only brought increased hot air. The vent knob was also broken. (2) in-room coffee maker was missing a base gasket and wobbled near the bathroom sink when brewing. 3) bathroom 'hot' faucet produced only lukewarm water for shaving (4) the bar had a fare selection of good beverages but was poorly equipped - its cooler had such a small capacity nearly every oder required the bartender to either reshuffle everything in it to get the desired item or spend 3-4 minutes going down the hall to a stockroom (5) breakfast started at 6:30am, probably 30 minutes later than most motels in the area. BUT speaking of which, they did have perhaps the best breakfast buffet I've seen lately. Not quite as many items as other but everything was cooked to perfection and in adequate supply the whole time I spent there eating. Also: their fitness room has resistance training machines instead of just cardio equipment - first time I've seen that. Aside from the items mentionjed rooms were nicely furnished.
