Reviewed January 22, 2014

This is a very nice pet friendly hotel with quick and easy access to I-95.

The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and the entire room was very clean with a bed that was comfortable. The refrigerator and microwave in the room were an unexpected surprise and the updated TV was also a plus. Parking was at a premium but we were able to park right near our room. Trying to figure out dinner, we decided on Papa John's who delivered piping hot pizza in less than 30 minutes.

The "pet area" was small and others hadn't cleaned up their pet's messes which made it unpleasant for us and our dog. A sign designating the area and some clean-up bags and trash can would have helped the situation.

The included breakfast had a good selection of items, however they had not been replenished. The waffles were excellent and the sausage gravy and biscuits were OK. The Danishes, biscuits and muffins however left a lot to be desired. Beverage selections were also lacking and there wasn't any yogurt.

Brittany checked us in and out and was very friendly and efficient. She was very busy at check in but still provided excellent service. Room was in a great location for walking the dog, room 107, and three was ample lighting for early morning potty call. Room was clean. Great shower head. Waffles were very good for breakfast also a good choice of other items. No eggs or yogurt.

Right off I95 with easy on. Next to Ruby Tuesday and Cracker Barrel. Both within very easy walking distance. Room was very clean, shower was hot. Pillows were those square, uncomfortable things! It was very crowded the night we stayed and maybe that's why it was so noisy but we could hear the water through the pipes like it was right in our room! We could hear people outside (we were on the first floor). Breakfast was great but because it was so busy, we had to wait for a table. The staff kept replenishing the food though and there was a good variety of yogurts, cereal, hard boiled eggs, waffles and various breads, muffins and fruit! We would stay here again or even another motel in this area might work since there are so many restaurants nearby.

Helpful, courteous, accommondating staff, clean rooms; sufficient choice of items for breakfast; excellent location; welcomes pets (and the rooms are clean) My concern was my dog doesn't shed and my husband has allergies.

This hotel would have been great, overall it was clean, with a few exceptions, and the bed was very comfortable, and it did allow pets, which was great since we had our dog with us. However, the fact that a train came by the hotel, blowing its whistle for what seemed like a very long time at 11:00 at night, and that happened twice. I feel like people should at least be made aware that this happens, at least when you check in. The couch was stained, which made you not want to really sit on it. Otherwise, the staff, breakfast and overall stay were good.

This place is soooo good (especially for dog people), I really didn't want to share our experience because it may be full the next time we want to use it. Also great breakfast choices. So Please don't stop there when we want to make a reservation.
