Overall, this was a nice hotel, but we did encounter several issues.
Check-in was smooth - our room was quite a hike away from the lobby, though. We could have parked in a back parking lot, but I really prefer to park near the lobby. We got our exercise. Looked at the property map to find the pool was at the opposite end of the hotel. We suited up and walked down... only to discover a sign saying the pool was closed. We walked to the front desk to double-check & yes, it was closed. This was very disappointing because we were really hoping to swim at the end of a long day of driving.
The front desk offered us passes to a nearby fitness center, but they only had a pool for laps, which just wasn't going to work with 2 kids who wanted to play in a pool, not swim laps, so we passed on that offer.
The room itself was clean, although I did kill one spider in the room, plus we saw a rather large spider in the hallway near the pool. The bed & pillows were comfortable. There was a small couch there which worked well for my 8yr old to sleep on.
The ice machines were empty when I went to them in the evening and again in the morning, so that was frustrating. The wi-fi did finally worked, but it took quite awhile to get connected & stay connected.
Breakfast was good - a nice variety of items. Sausage, waffles, yogurt, fruit, cereals, breads, etc... We all had a good breakfast & prepared to hit the road to continue on our journey.
Overall, this wasn't a bad place - it was clean and very convenient to the highway. The lack of ice and the pool being closed were big issues for us. It looked like the hotel was a nice conference center at some point, but had deteriorated a bit over the years.
It worked fine for a one night stay for us while driving through -- I'm not sure I'd want to stay here for several days though... at least not with the issues we encountered.
