Hotel was convenient stop next to I-70 with shopping center & restaurants nearby. Room was clean and Buffet breakfast was good. Hall carpeting seemed a little stained or dark but it was fine. Also, pet friendly !

We stayed here on our way home from a wedding in Delaware. After a long drive we were looking forward to stopping for the night. Access was challenging due to the fact the entrance was not able to accessed from the highway so we had to turn around in a KFC lot to get back on the highway. Not ideal, but there was a sign at the registration desk apologizing for the inconvenience. The desk clerk greeted us but immediately asked for ID and credit card right after I gave my name. A "hello" might have been nicer. He was friendlier after the documents were presented. The desk clerk helped us gather literature for pizza delivery as we did not want to deal with the road traffic again. The room was much nicer than the previous Comfort Inn in which we stayed in few days prior in PA. The room was attractive but smelled of disinfectant. It was very strong. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were very soft. We slept well. The breakfast was severely lacking. The batter for the waffles had run out and numerous guests commented....especially those with children. No one was at the desk to address this concern which was disappointing. Someone should be sure the breakfast bar is fully supplied during the entire course of the breakfast time. The other offerings were minimal so we actually left hungry. The computer in the lobby for guest use had an issue and I had to fix the problem. Then when I went to print a map from MapQuest there was no ink in the printer. Once again there was no one at the desk to address this concern.The cost of the room was the selling point but we didn't really get all we paid for (breakfast, etc.)

Room Tip: This facility has an elevator which is nice.

Had a good stay at this property. Check-in was easy, the desk clerk was friendly, courteous, and efficient. The breakfast was typical and the staff kept the items replenished and the area clean. When we first entered our room there was a prevalent odor that smelled like stale cigarette smoke, even though the property is nonsmoking. The hotel does have sensors that set off an alarm if someone does smoke in a room. In fact, that alarm did go off early evening and the desk clerk said someone did try to smoke in one of the rooms when the alarm went off. I would stay here again.

This hotel was fine, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Went for a room with a king and bunk beds, never come across this before, but it worked really well travelling with three children. Wish more places offered this kind of option. The bunk bed linens were character ones too, which was a nice touch. Thanks.

Room Tip: If you're travelling with children try the rooms with bunk bed, a great hit, though a ladder of...

This is a great hotel bargain. You get a comfortable bed and a free breakfast, usually for well under $100. However, the location seems to be lacking an attention to detail. My family has stayed on two occasions, so I feel confident in saying this.

There are strange smells in the hallways, rooms sometimes have broken items (we had a broken phone and a busted cabinet door), and the pool is an unsettling shade of green.

The management team is reactive rather than proactive. On both stays, they had to be reminded to turn on the pool lights and put clean towels on the racks. On the first visit, they needed to be told that they had run out of hot breakfast items.

With stronger management, and some cleaning up, this could be a great, rather than just an average, night's stay.

Room Tip: Not all of the room refrigerators have freezers - be sure to verify if you need one!

Overall the hotel is good and the staff is excellent. Pool was in good shape and a good temperature. The breakfast selection was average, but good quality food and attended to by staff. We noticed 3 small black bugs in the comforter on top of the bed. We took it off the bed and asked for a new clean comforter and had no further problems.

We had a very good experience. Easy check-in; went flawlessly. The room was clean and comfortable. Very nice to be able to relax after a long day on the road. Breakfast was great. Lots of good choices. Thanks again.
