We were traveling around the country, chose this one because of reviews here on TA, and arrived late evening. It is not close to the interstate but only a few minutes away. Definitely worth it. Close to the lake (where we took a drive in the AM before we left the area.)
We were greeted and directed to our room. The pool had just closed which was unfortunate as it looked very inviting.This hotel is older, but updated. The bed was comfortable, though soft and the pillows were good, too. We slept well, after getting used to the refrigerator turning on and off. We couldn't turn it off as we needed it to keep some things cold. The bathroom was nice and clean. Beds, pillows and bathrooms are the most important things to us!
Breakfast was great; nice buffet of scrambled eggs, home-fries, casserole, bacon/sausage and other items. Nice staff and a fast check out. We'll be putting this place on our list of favorites.
