I spent the previous night at the #3 rated motel and moved to the Alex Johnson because I couldn't sleep there. I am glad I did because the staff and management at the Alex Johnson were wonderful. I have stayed there many times but this time was even better. Everyone was helpful and professional.
From the bartenders to the bellboys to the front desk and the restaurant, everyone was welcoming and genuine. It felt like home. While the Vertex bar and restaurant on the top floor is expensive, the drinks were outstanding and the view while sitting around the fire pit is superb.
I would recommend this location over any of the box motels by the the interstate any day.
