Hotel is nice enough- pretty entry and decent room although on the small side, but nothing overly special. The bed looked super plush, but I didn't find it that comfortable and actually a bit hard. The carpets weren't disgusting by any means, but seemed in need of a cleaning as they were a bit dingy looking. Pretty much an average place for a mid-level hotel.
The cash price seems high compared to other hotels within the same brand that I have stayed. To be more specific, the Choice Hotel reward program has an acceptable reward program price per night at this hotel- especially compared to similar hotels in the same brand- (12,000 per night vs up to 20,000). However, I found the travel reward program through my credit card (uses Travelocity) was much better yet at only 10,000. Interestingly, the Travelocity point system charges that same 10,000 points for a Rodeway Inn a short distance up the highway that is half the cash price or better of this hotel. There is no question I would choose this over the Rodeway Inn for the same points, but don't think this hotel is worth over double the cash price of the Rodeway Inn which I have stayed at numerous times.
Since I frequent this area every year or so, the bottom line would be that I won't likely pay cash at this hotel due to better values being elsewhere, but if I have the points through Choice Priveleges or better yet, my travel credit card, this hotel is a particularly good value and I would gladly stay here under those circumstances. I would consider this hotel a 5 star for point value, but only 3 stars for cash, hence the average of 4 stars given.
